Lead with compassion for a promising future

We are a pragmatic and committed investor who does not shy away from a challenge. In fact, that is when we flourish.

We believe in giving people and teams freedom so they can take responsibility. Whether this means working together with entrepreneurs, management teams or our vast network of industry experts, we aim to be engaged partners every step of the way.

Our Approach


The establishment of Oak Tree Hill Capital is rooted in a remarkable fusion. Danielle Schiphorst, a psychologist specializing in work engagement, and Emiel Putman, a highly regarded entrepreneur, seemingly emerge from two disparate worlds. However, by combining their backgrounds and talents, they created a distinctive investment approach. It revolves around a shared aspiration for greater compassion in society, which forms the foundation for their investments, portfolio operating models, and leadership.
