Oxford Investment Consultants is a highly specialised investment advisory partnership.

We perform research analysis and offer advisory services on companies that are the product of UK university grant-funded scientific development in a broad array of fields.

Our partnership draws on years of investment experience and close relationships with strategically placed institutions and individuals within the Oxford, Cambridge and other UK university ecosystems to select the highest quality scientific spinout investment opportunities.


What is our strategy?

Achieving our mission requires an understanding of the potential commercial applications and unmet needs satisfied by new technologies, as well as the intellectual property that protects their competitive position.


What are spinout companies?

Spinouts are business entities formed to commercialise research and technology which has been developed by university academic groups and usually protected by patents.


Why are spinout companies favourable investment opportunities?

Spinouts receive significant support from the universities they have emerged from, both financially and in terms of general support.


What is the Oxford Technology and Innovations EIS Fund (OTIF)?

OTIF is advised by OIC and invests in spinout companies from world-leading universities in the UK, with a focus upon Oxford and Cambridge.


How does the UK university spinout ecosystem compare?

In recent years, there has been a huge increase in activities around the commercialisation of UK science and technology IP. The Golden Triangle of Oxford, Cambridge and London is home to most of the UK's leading technology companies and it also boasts four of the world’s top 10 Universities.
