EducationInvestor award winners

This is the second time in the past three years that Oakley has been awarded the title.

Oakley is also pleased to announce that its portfolio company ICP Nurseries won Nursery Operators of the Year at this year’s awards.

Oakley’s powerful case studies bring to light exactly why they deserve to win this category – they carefully select deals with massive potential, and scrutinise the entirety of the education sector across Europe in order to achieve this. While this should be a crowded field, in 2021, Oakley undoubtedly stand out.
