Many investors like asset-backed EIS. You get the valuable tax relief of EIS investments, plus an extra 'safety net'. Should the investment fail, you might still get some value from the assets owned by the businesses.

There's a catch though. With the new and more restrictive EIS rules, there aren't many asset-backed EIS available.

Two we like have just opened. If you like asset-backed EIS, we think you should have a look without delay.
