Previous EIS Funds

Previous Lacomp EIS Funds

Lacomp have previously marketed and launched 12 EIS funds investing in British businesses.

Specifically designed to offer an exciting investment story with the potential for substantial capital growth, the Lacomp British Enterprise EIS Funds provided investors with a spread of investments in small and early stage companies that qualify for the generous tax reliefs available through the Enterprise Investment Scheme.

The Lacomp British Enterprise EIS Funds each gave investors a spread of risk by holding a 'portfolio' of investments, while all the British Enterprise EIS Funds were Approved Investment Funds (approved by HMRC), a critical factor for some of the taxation benefits.

Further British Enterprise EIS Funds will be launched in the future.

Underlying Investments - the most important consideration

With the advice and assistance of the acknowledged experts on our Investment Advisory Panel we invest in, monitor and support some of Britain's brightest entrepreneurial talents and most exciting new businesses.

Although the EIS tax breaks are considerable, the most important aspect of any investment is the potential for capital growth.

Whereas the vast majority of VCTs invest predominantly in AIM-listed companies, the Lacomp EIS Funds always seek to invest prior to the uplift in valuation usually associated with a listing.  Nevertheless, it is worth noting that this does not exclude the potential for our investment selections to be asset backed.

Previous funds have invested in a diverse range of underlying Investee Companies, innovators in fields such as:

    * internet card-payment systems;
    * affordable workplace health screening;
    * e-learning systems;
    * robotic surgical devices and cameras;
    * the oil industry;
    * waste disposal;
    * blast-proof fabrics;
    * revolutionary anti-bacterial cleaning agents.

It has often been argued that any sizeable, well-spread portfolio should always contain an element of unquoted equities.  Obviously, such an exposure should be proportionate to the size of the total portfolio in order to retain the chosen overall risk profile.  This is one of the reasons we traditionally set the level for the minimum investment at £3,000, thus making this investment opportunity available to almost everyone.
