The EIS Navigator Podcast: Look back on 2020 and look forward to 2021
2020 has been a challenging year for many and the EIS industry is no exception. The EIS Navigator team have got together an all-star panel to discuss what happened. Mark Brownridge, Director General of EIS Association, Ewoud Karelse, Head of Tax Advantaged Investments, Tilney Smith & Williamson, and Kealan Doyle, Director, Symvan Capital join Brian to pick through the debris and the prospects for 2021.
In this episode of The EIS Navigator, we discuss fundraising and investing, whether the government support schemes have worked for EIS companies and what area needs to change. We also discuss the new Knowledge Intensive Approved Funds as well as EISA’s fees initiative before a poke around Brexit and what may or may not happen in 2021.
On the latter point, we recorded this in early December when a deal looked unlikely so our comments may be less prescient than we had hoped!
