GBI Magazine hosted a one-of-a-kind “EIS on trial Webinar” in an attempt to uncover advisers’ true feelings about the investment scheme.

In a trend-breaking format, Lawrence Gosling presided as judge of the court with Martin Fox as the prosecution and Stephen Jones as the defence.

The two sides rigorously assessed the pros and cons of EIS as an investment choice with the calling of key witnesses to back their arguments.


Representatives from industry-leading companies such as Par Equity and Hardman & Co, amongst others, gave their viewpoints and leaned on their expertise to advise the on-looking jury as to the validity of EIS as an investment opportunity.

Ultimately, the decision came down to the Jury (our viewers) as to whether they believe that the positives of investing in EIS outweigh the negatives.

Following the vote, GBI Magazine can exclusively reveal that 93% of the jury believed that the positives do in fact outweigh the negatives, thus giving the case to the defence.
