Investment Strategy: technology eis fund
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.
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.
