Our investment

Oakley Capital has invested in Affinitas Education, a company established by education entepreneur Victor Lundsten with the intention of building a new, global K12 schools group. Having completed its first three acquisitions in Spain and Mexico, today Affinitas comprises nine premium, private schools with a combined >8,500 students, and a large and growing pipeline of active opportunities across Europe and the Americas.

Market Dynamics

K12 education is an attractive c.$3.5 trillion international market with strong, long-term growth drivers. Global private-pay schooling represents c.11% of this spend, and is expected to grow 7% p.a. through to 2030 as families prioritise education spending. At the same time, globalisation is driving demand for English speaking education as a path to international universities and high-paying professions.
