With the political maelstrom continuing almost unabated in the UK and overseas, the team here at GB Investments Magazine remains steadfast in our goal. Our job is to make sure we bring you thought provoking articles and features that not only reassuringly positive and grounded but which help to shape your thinking around the role and importance of EIS and its continuing contribution to the business of UK plc. And that’s not forgetting its relevance to your clients’ financial planning objectives and investment portfolios.

This edition of GBI Magazine is focused on two key elements that reflect many of the latest approaches and commentary on our EIS sector – namely transparency and momentum.



When our City Editor Neil Martin spoke to the team at Velocity Capital Advisers and asked them what marked them out from the crowd, their Chairman, Michael Whitfield, is clear that transparency is the critical factor. We also talk to Kuber Ventures, about their aim of leading a revolution of transparency in EIS via its platform.

Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated,” famously quipped Mark Twain, and that could be true regarding EIS, according to Andrew Aldridge of Deepbridge Capital. Figures released from HMRC at the end of May certainly demonstrate the huge momentum shift which is leading more and more investors to realise the value and attraction of investing in EIS and SEIS. Here at GBI Magazine, we are not surprised to see this but reassured none the less.


Also in the following pages, Syndicate Room looks at how advisers can use radical diversification to outperform venture capitalists.

And last but certainly not least, our popular Open Offers section brought to you in partnership with GrowthInvest provides an excellent central resource for you to consider all of the latest opportunities available as part of your clients’ portfolios.
