Newable EIS Scale-Up Fund 3

As tax year end approaches, we are looking at a number of fund solutions in the space for you to consider

The Newable EIS Scale-Up Fund 3 seeks to leverage the company’s corporate infrastructure to invest in knowledge intensive companies at the scale-up growth stage.

Newable is a leading provider of serviced office, advisory, lending and equity solutions to some 12,000 SMEs per annum. Offering the expertise of around 220 professionals, the Newable EIS Scale-Up Fund 3 has a unique infrastructure from which to originate, undertake due diligence, execute, support, monitor and ultimately exit investments.

Newable is independently recognised as one of the UK’s leading investment networks and draws on a 36 year track record (bolstered by the acquisition of London Business Angels in April 2017) as well as long term partnerships with the UK government and business community.

The Fund aims to provide investors with a diversified portfolio of 7-10 knowledge intensive companies, offering investors exposure to an exciting asset class without the need to stock-pick and commit management time.

Risk is partially mitigated through a selection methodology and due diligence built around Newable’s 500+ investor group as well as by leveraging the Enterprise Investment Scheme for early stage investments.
