Guinness EIS – manager interview

What do Alexa Chung’s fashion label, a care-in-the-home healthcare business and a Scottish prawn farm have in common? All have attracted investment from the Guinness EIS fund

This generalist EIS portfolio from Guinness Asset Management favours private companies whose growth prospects are underpinned by strong balance sheet or visible cash flows.

What sort of businesses is the fund investing in now that its previous strong suit – asset-backed investments – are no longer allowed under EIS? How has the team adapted? And what sort of returns and exit timeframes could EIS investors expect from this year’s tranche of investments? Alex Davies, founder and CEO of Wealth Club, interviews Shane Gallwey to find out.
