Explore below some of the different types of alternative assest investment opportunites available on our platform.
The Enterprise Investment Scheme (“EIS”) is a Government scheme that provides a range of tax reliefs for private investors who invest in EIS qualifying companies - generally early stage growth companies.
Similar to EIS, Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs) are a Government scheme designed to encourage individuals to invest in a diversified portfolio of smaller unquoted companies via a fund structure.
Private equity (“PE”) is medium to long-term finance provided in return for an equity stake in potentially high-growth unquoted companies. PE investments are typically in more mature companies.
Property investments are generally over a fixed term and aim to provide an agreed yield return. Most investments offer the benefit of being tied in some way to the underlying property asset(s) thereby providing additional investment security.
Direct investments into single company opportunities, as opposed to investing via a fund, may suit private investors who have particular sector expertise or relevant management knowledge.
Unlisted companies may seek to raise debt based funding in the form of single company bonds, generally to support the establishment of specific infrastructure or to cover the costs of an identified project.
