Who we are
ED Group Holding Limited (“ED Group”) is a privately owned company located in Jersey with investment holdings and business activities across various regions and sectors in the UK, Channel Islands, Europe and North America.
ED Group owns interests in two financial services businesses in Jersey. The first, ED Capital, is a wholly owned Trust Company Business specialising in corporate administration. The other, Oakbridge, is a majority owned Investment Business focussed on high net worth clients, mostly resident in the Channel Islands. Both are regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
ED Group’s real estate interests are mainly in Central London, where it has established a successful track record of investing and developing in various sectors and locations over the past decade. ED Group’s residential development portfolio ranges from low volume, very high value projects in the West End, through mid-market projects in midtown, to higher volume projects in Canary Wharf and City Fringe areas. Its commercial investment and development portfolio spans from the West End through to Canary Wharf, the City and City Fringe areas, with a primary focus on office led projects. For projects in Central London, ED Group tends to work closely with LBS Properties, in which it is a major shareholder. ED Group also owns several non-core investment assets in Eastern Europe and the Caribbean.
ED Group’s liquid asset base is managed in-house in Jersey. It consists of multi-asset class direct investments and a select number of complimentary external asset managers.
Gordon Crawford, ED Group’s principal, has a long track record of establishing, investing in and growing companies in the technology sector. ED Group seeks to leverage this experience through its portfolio of private equity investments, largely in financial technology. The investment approach is unconstrained but tends to involve a long-term, collaborative relationship and transatlantic growth originating from the UK.
