Oggin launched in 2019 and has since invested in a range of ventures and actively manages a portfolio of real estate, traditional and alternative assets.

The term Oggin means 'ocean' in naval slang and therefore just like the great explorers who had big goals to cross the worlds oceans, our investment philosophy is to back businesses that are not afraid to take on the toughest challenges.

Whether it's in building a sustainable real estate portfolio, investing in emerging start-ups or managing a balanced portfolio of traditional and alternative assets, we look for those who dare to dream and innovate.
