Ingenious Infrastructure Ventures EIS

The Ingenious Infrastructure Ventures EIS aims to invest in companies that develop, operate, or provide services to infrastructure in the UK and other developed countries. The minimum investment is £10,000.  

Examples of infrastructure projects into which the fund will invest include energy management, electric vehicle charging stations, broadband internet access and agricultural equipment.  It is a growth EIS, however the companies in which it invests are asset rich, as they own the infrastructure.

Ingenious has an existing relationship with the firms in which it seeks to invest, thanks to established business relationships from previous EIS investments, which means it aims to deploy all capital this tax year.  

Risks

As with all EIS, investors’ capital is at risk and the investments have low liquidity. Investors should not invest money they cannot afford to lose. Tax rules can change and the value of tax benefits will depend on individual circumstances. Please see the information memorandum for more details.

Fees and charges

A summary of the fees and charges is shown below. Please see the provider's documents for more details.

Full initial charge up to 7.75%
Wealth Club initial saving 0.5%
Net initial charge through Wealth Club up to 7.25%
Annual charge 2.375%
Performance fee 20%

More detail on the charges

Ingenious is involved in a long-running dispute with HMRC over some of its legacy film tax schemes. Recently, HMRC reportedly issued an order for investors to pay back millions of pounds in taxes. The issues relate to film production companies that we understand are unconnected to Ingenious’ current EIS and IHT offers.

Wealth Club aims to highlight investments we believe have merit, but you should form your own view. You should decide based on the provider's documents and ensure you have read and fully understand them before investing. This short review is a marketing communication. It is not advice or a personal or research recommendation to buy the investment mentioned. It does not satisfy legal requirements promoting investment research independence and is thus not subject to prohibitions on dealing ahead of its dissemination. August 18
