Information for Investors

EIS/SEIS is appropriate for Investors who wish to include in their portfolio some higher risk based companies.  EISA recommends taking professional advice before investing in EIS/SEIS funds or companies since the rules governing the EIS/SEIS are complex and interrelated with other legislation.

Over £9.7bn of private funding has been raised by EIS companies across the UK since the scheme’s inception in 1994 and 2012*. These range from small ‘friends and family’ rounds, business angel investments where individuals are contributing skill as well as funding, through to formal public offers and EIS funds.  The number of professionally managed EIS/SEIS funds is growing and the sector is becoming more established.

It is a useful exercise to consider some or all of the following prior to assessing your investment:

  1. Size of intended investment
  2. Single investment or spread of investments
  3. Sectors that may be of interest
  4. Passive or active ie business angel wishing to deploy skills

Please note:  The Association neither endorses any particular member, product or company/firm wishing to raise money under the EIS/SEIS nor does it accept any liability for advice given by its members.
