Summary of the Deepbridge Technology Growth EIS

The Deepbridge Technology Growth EIS is an opportunity to participate in a portfolio of actively-managed growth-focused technology companies, taking advantage of the potential tax benefits available under the Enterprise Investment Scheme.

A diversified portfolio of actively managed growth-focused companies seeking commercialisation funding, the Deepbridge EIS invests in technology growth companies that have a proven technology, robust intellectual property and are operating in a high growth market sector.

Investments in unquoted companies carry high risks and investors could lose all funds invested. Investors should not invest if capital is required in the near term. No established market exists for the trading of shares in private companies, making it difficult to sell shares. The value of tax reliefs depend on personal circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. The availability of tax reliefs depends on the Company invested in maintaining its qualifying status. Past performance is not a guide to the future performance of an investment, and investors are encouraged to take independent legal, tax and financial advice before considering an investment.

We also offer a Life Sciences EIS fund, for more details on this click here.



Investment Strategy: technology eis fund

The Deepbridge Technology Growth EIS is focused on investing in growth-focused companies that are seeking to commercialise and expand, specifically in three sectors:

  • Energy & resource innovation
  • Medical technology
  • IT-based technology.

Deepbridge takes an active role (not just a Board seat) to guide, mentor and counsel the investee management team. The provision of hands-on operational experience combined with financial expertise can materially mitigate the investment risk borne by the Investor, along with comprehensive due diligence on investee companies.

Deepbridge Charges

There are no management charges levied on the investor at the point of investment for subscriptions received by a financial adviser, resulting in up to 100% allocation of subscription. This ensures up to 100% tax efficiency for investors. Deepbridge fees are paid by the Investee Companies and are disclosed in the Information Memorandum. 

Please note that for direct investors (i.e. those that subscribe without a financial adviser involved), an additional charge of 2.5% including VAT will be deducted from the subscription to cover Deepbridge's costs associated with verifying the appropriateness of the Deepbridge EIS application.

Performance fee: an incentive fee of 20% of cash returned, in excess of 120% of the funds invested.

For clarification, once the Investor has received in cash the first 120 pence per 100 pence invested (ignoring any tax relief and representing a 20% Hurdle Rate on funds invested), any additional distributable cash will be paid as to 80% to the Investor and 20% to Deepbridge. 

Please see the Information Memorandum for full details.
