New video: five tips for investing in EIS and SEIS

I’ve invested in EIS and SEIS funds, and directly into single companies, for a number of years. I’m often asked about how they’ve served me so far and what I consider before investing. 

They’re very different from other types of investments. Investment Manager Nick Hyett and I chatted about this recently, and also considered what tips we might have for those planning to invest in EIS and SEIS – you can watch the video interview below. 

Why is timing important with EIS and SEIS, in the way it isn’t for other types of investments? The generous tax breaks are attractive – what risks are these meant to help mitigate, and how does the fallback of loss relief work? What are Nick’s five important tips – and my additional observations, following my own investments in EIS/SEIS? Watch our brief chat to learn more.

Important: This video is for experienced investors. It represents the views of the interviewees and is not a personal recommendation to invest or to buy, sell or hold shares in any company. EIS and SEIS nvestments are for the long-term, high risk and illiquid: you could lose the money you invest. Past performance is not a guide to the future and dividends are variable and not guaranteed. Tax rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances.
