Ventures - With dedicated teams in Europe, China, Hong Kong, India and Japan as well as a range of affiliated businesses, Eight Roads represents one of the largest and most diverse global venture capital ecosystems.

Principal Investing - As a private investment firm with permanent capital, we are able to invest with a long time horizon. This means we can focus on innovative and ambitious businesses looking to disrupt or lead their chosen markets. We favour opportunities which not only stand as great businesses in their own right but which offer a more expansive growth platform for the future.

Real Estate - We invest directly in prime commercial and residential real estate in major global cities including London, Tokyo and Stockholm.

We also back outside investment teams with unique capabilities in areas of interest for our business, for example, our investment in Food & Agriculture specialist fund, Anterra Capital.
