Downing Healthcare EIS

Downing’s first impact fund, the Downing Healthcare EIS is its third specialist healthcare & life sciences EIS knowledge intensive fund, but the first with a clear impact focus.

The fund seeks to invest in ambitious, early-stage EIS companies in healthcare & life-sciences who contribute to the objectives of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being).

These knowledge intensive companies seek to undertake research, development or innovation to develop new products and services that support SDG 3, creating value for investors and society that may not otherwise have occurred. As a knowledge intensive fund, it also provides accelerated income tax relief in the tax year of investment.

The managers consider the ESG characteristics of these companies throughout the investment process, and throughout the lifetime of the investment, aim to capture, monitor and review the progress of the business against relevant impact KPIs and report this to investors regularly.

  • Downing targets a return of 3x+ for investors after a successful exit within a target of four to eight years from investment.

By investing in companies that directly contribute to our society’s health and wellbeing, Downing strongly believes it can achieve attractive and sustainable returns for investors.
