About Octopus Healthcare
Octopus Healthcare was formed in 2014 by the acquisition of MedicX Holdings Ltd by Octopus Investments and is a leading healthcare property investor / developer in the UK. With a ten year track record, approximately £1bn of assets under management and a team of approximately 40, we are active across the whole spectrum of UK healthcare property. This includes primary healthcare, care homes, retirement property, private hospitals and special needs schools.
Our investment portfolio of around 200 properties includes the MedicX Fund, listed on the London Stock Exchange (LON:MXF), two limited partnerships (MedicX Healthfund I & II). We invest both through direct property development / investment, and also through joint ventures and equity investments with healthcare operators. As an innovative, best-in-class UK healthcare property market investor / developer, Octopus Healthcare is at the forefront of the sector at a time of unprecedented change and opportunity.
However, Octopus Healthcare’s ambition extends beyond growth; our objective is to be a different type of investor. We have a longer term investment horizon and look to develop and invest in exceptional property and businesses that put people first and reflect our values. Octopus Healthcare is in a position to make change across the healthcare spectrum; we aim to challenge the status quo and create properties that will improve people’s lives.
