The Oak Investment Partnership is an employee-owned company whose primary purpose is to provide a stable, long-term home for financial services companies that focus on providing an excellent and continually improving service to clients over the very long-term. The Partnership was established in West Oxfordshire in 1992 and is currently home to three partner companies: Wise Investment, Wise Funds and Evenlode Investment.
The Oak Investment Partnership is owned by its employees through an Employee Ownership Trust. The trust comprises of four trustees, with three partner company representatives and one partnership board representative. Partner company trustees are re-elected every three years and any member of staff can put themselves forward as long as they have at least three years permanent service.
They see themselves as a family-firm and their ethos is to care; for their clients, for each other and for the business. They operate a 'one-team' approach where they consider themselves to be on the same side. In this environment people are encouraged to say what they think and to offer up ideas and opinions about the business and the way they work.
The more people give, the more they get. The more people invest themselves in the Partnership, the more they will get out of it in terms of job satisfaction, reward and opportunities.
