The RO

The RO is involved in a diverse range of investments through RO Real Estate as well as retaining majority interests in Metis Homes and Charteroak, both businesses that have progressed through their association with us. 


Thriving through diversity of interest


Ownership of property has always been the engine room of the RO, providing the rental income and the security to enable the diversity of interest that has always been in existence.


We first invested in Charteroak more than ten years ago and, now under the RO's direct control, it has grown to become one of the best known holiday lodge development businesses, with two stunning sites in Cornwall.

Metis Homes was established in January 2008 as we saw the strategic benefits of maintaining an interest in the house building sector.


RO Land was established in 2020 to build on the group’s existing successes in land acquisition and planning. Our objective is to add value to land by unlocking its development potential.


Throughout its history the RO has been involved in a number of financing businesses from insurance broking and hire purchase to development finance.


RO Capital Partners is an early stage investor with a clearly differentiated offering that draws on the extensive entrepreneurial experience of the RO Group. 


As climate change continues to challenge business operations and how we consume resources, the most recent addition to the portfolio builds on the RO’s history in large scale ground mounted solar development.
