Kirsty is a Tax Consultant and specialises in the implementation and structuring of various tax-advantaged and tax-efficient share schemes for employees including EMI, CSOP, SIPs, LTIPS and growth shares. She also has in-depth experience of advising both companies, angel syndicates and private investors on SEIS and EIS investments.
Kirsty is ATT qualified, holds the EIS Diploma and has worked in this sector for six years building her knowledge and reputation in the field throughout Scotland, and beyond.
In 2019 Kirsty was appointed to the newly formed Enterprise Investment Scheme Association (EISA) Women in Venture Capital working group, aimed at increasing female representation in the UK’s venture capital sector.
The aim of the London-based committee is to help EISA member firms and the wider UK venture capital industry achieve gender balance at all levels and support the progression of more women into senior roles. The members of the group look at practical actions and initiatives to help firms implement appropriate diversity strategies. .
In her spare time, Kirsty enjoys pretending to have a keen interest in sport by cycling, golfing and playing social (but very competitive) netball. Her less active interests include cooking and finding new food and drink spots in Edinburgh.
