The Sygnia OSI fund invests in shares of Oxford Sciences Innovatin Plc – a company that has partnered with the University of Oxford to convert its patents and research ideas into commercial enterprises and in select spin-out companies that have achieved scale and success, while having a positive impact on humanity. The fund prioritises investments in companies which through technology- driven innovation are revolutionising the provision of healthcare and reducing the impact of climate change. OSI’s Investment Principals work with academics to turn a patent into a spin-out business. They help to build the management team and develop the product through to revenue generation.
 
OSI was launched in June 2015, raising 600 million British Pounds in capital from leading global asset management firms. OSI acts as the seed investor and deploys the capital it raised to commercialise specific investment opportunities that it identifies as having potential exponential future value in fields such as genomics, AI, fintech, quantum computing, etc… So far, 73 companies have been spun out of the Oxford University via OSI. 4 years since OSI was set up, the market capitalisation has risen to 708 million British Pounds as at June 2019.

Return in British pounds since inception is 18,1%
