What will the Webinar cover?

  • What an EIS is, and the tax reliefs associated with it
  • How to spot clients that the Octopus Ventures EIS Service could be appropriate for
  • Understand what the Octopus Ventures EIS Service could deliver for your clients, and what the key risks are
  • Learn about our experienced venture capital investment team, their strategy and processes

Octopus look for pioneers who are changing the rules of the game in their industry. And, as one of Europe’s largest venture capital firms, they have over 20 years of experience in selecting these kinds of companies. They’ve backed household names like Zoopla, Secret Escapes, Graze and Tails.com.

Risks to bear in mind 

  • The value of an investment in the Octopus Ventures EIS Service, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the full amount invested
  • The shares of unlisted companies could fall or rise in value more than other shares listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell
  • Tax reliefs available on EIS investments depend on individual circumstances. Tax treatment is assumed as per current legislation and interpretation, which may change in the future
  • Tax reliefs also depend on the portfolio companies maintaining their EIS-qualifying status
