Oberon Investments Group is a financial services boutique with activities spanning wealth management & planning, private ventures, corporate advisory and fund administration. It was founded in 2018 by Simon McGivern (CEO) and listed on the Aquis Stock Exchange (ASE) in 2021. Oberon's management has built a unique business model that has benefitted from investment in new infrastructure and technology. Each business has substantial growth potential, but the connectivity across the businesses is a key differentiator and revenue driver for Oberon.
Intensive investment in challenging capital markets has created a differentiated business model, positioned well in a consolidating sector. Investment is driving strong growth in funds under management & administration (FUMA) and in revenue. FY23's results reflected commitment and vision to continue investing in subdued markets, which supports management's expectation of over 65% revenue growth in FY24. We forecast a point of inflection when Oberon's operational gearing will drive strong EBITDA growth in FY25 and FY26.
