Instant investment pledge at Blackfinch Ventures West End showcase

Blackfinch Ventures

Blackfinch Ventures’ showcase IFA presentation at London’s prestigious Royal Automobile Club (RAC) received an extremely positive response. We were delighted to hear an EIS investor in attendance chose to invest immediately.

The event launched the new Blackfinch Ventures EIS Portfolios in London on Friday 12th October. It is part of UK-wide series of events staged to highlight the compelling new ventures offering from the Blackfinch team.

Held at historic members venue, the Royal Automobile Club (RAC), St James, the event hosted nearly 60 advisers and clients. Participants heard presentations and worked examples from this fresh new venture investment product.

David Craven, Managing Director of Blackfinch Ventures, led the event with Gordon Pugh, Senior Business Development Manager at Blackfinch. The presentations outlined Blackfinch’s specialism in Business Relief-focused offerings, along with the high-growth opportunities that the portfolios represent for clients.

Investing in the UK’s most innovative EIS-qualifying companies, the Blackfinch Ventures EIS portfolios bring the prospect of significant returns alongside EIS tax benefits. They are fully aligned with updated government requirements around EIS. Blackfinch also invests its own capital alongside that of investors, ensuring further alignment.

David Craven stated: “We are fortunate to have been able to share this product launch in London with some very knowledgeable and experienced investment professionals. The buzz in the room was palpable as IFAs and clients locked onto the upside potential of ventures and how we manage investor risk.”

Gordon Pugh added, “I was delighted that such a large group of amazing advisers listened to my Blackfinch tax-efficient presentation at the RAC. Thank you to all those that attended and helped.”
