Ed Prior, SFC Capital EIS & SEIS funds

We talk to Ed Prior, chief investment officer at SFC Capital (formerly known as Startup Funding Club), about their SEIS fund – which is exclusive to Wealth Club on a non-advised basis – and their Angel EIS fund, which makes follow-on investments in selected companies from the seed fund.

Investing in early-stage companies may be high risk and failures are common, but SFC Capital seeks to give adventurous private investors the chance to back businesses with high growth potential when they are still embryonic. 

We met with Ed Prior, head of investor services, to find out how they approach their SEIS and EIS funds. How many companies would an investor get in a typical portfolio? What sort of companies do they select? How do they find them? How involved are they in the companies post-investment? How risky is it? What exits have they had to date? And how are adverse economic conditions affecting the portfolio? Watch the interview to find out…
