Colin Oxlade (born June 18, 1865 in Sandringham, Victoria) is an Australian businessman.He runs Corporate Advisory Firm, a business that includes elements such as capital raising, mergers & acquisitions, and commodity trading. He has formerly worked with Brainytoys, Vanilla Group Australia, and Australian Sports Car Promotions.
Oxlade received some criticism in August 2013 when he sent out an email purporting that the mining company Astra Resources was "on the verge of listing on a major European exchange" and that he could offer the e-mail recipients off-market shares of Astra at a "large discount". Oxlade later stated that the e-mail had been sent out in error, that he was offering private shares, and he was not working on behalf of the company.
