The EIS Market Continues to Grow

I was interested in the report recently been published by the EIS Association.There had been concerns that the exclusion of small-scale renewable energy schemes from EIS relief might result in some decline in EIS investment. However, the results of the survey are encouraging not only because it suggests that the EIS market is continuing to grow but that investment is continuing to flow into trading companies.At the same time we are seeing an exponential growth in crowdfunding and it is very clear from the survey that both investors and their advisers are primarily interested in the track record and experience of those who...
