Company Profile


OLIM Property is an FCA regulated property investment manager of UK commercial property portfolios. Our Funds Under Management total is now over £1 billion with individual discretionary mandates for pension funds, investment trusts and Oxford colleges. Our first three client mandates in 1986 were for Value and Income Trust PLC (now known as Value and Indexed Property Income Trust PLC), an Oxford College and a FTSE 100 Pension Fund where our portfolio has grown from £10 million to over £800 million.

Matthew Oakeshott was joint founder of OLIM and has managed the property side of its business continuously since 1986. After Close Brothers bought a majority shareholding in 2000, OLIM Property Limited completed a management buyout of the property side of OLIM in 2012.
