growth through innovation

ABOUT US

Odysseus Investments, part of Reech Corporations Group, is a growth investor and asset builder across financials and technology, facilitating the creation of new markets by the digitisation of traditional sectors.

STRATEGY

We concentrate in the traditional finance, banking (wholesale and retail), insurance, real estate and infra tech sectors, focussing on opportunities with proven business models that will benefit from our experience in technology, financial structuring or scaling. 

As a growth partner we’re not afraid to participate in multiple rounds of investments and believe our multi-stage approach allows us to provide real long term growth and drive value back into our portfolio companies.

As the investment arm of Reech Corporations Group, we have access to extended global influence and market expertise. We have the ability to originate significant off market deal flow and use our own proprietary technology to filter investments at scale. 

With our active approach and asset builder mentality we’re striving to grow considerable assets, whilst driving rapid innovation and digitisation within the finance and technology sectors.
