The Sentinel EIS specialist approach to portfolio investments is on the merit of each company, with independent specialist due diligence and bespoke monitoring/reporting systems and processes provided by Samphire Partners Limited.


Since the Enterprise Investment Scheme (“EIS”) was launched in 1993-94, almost 26,355 individual companies have received investment through the scheme and over £16.2 billion of funds have been raised, with a total £1.88 billion going into EIS firms in 2015/2016. Investors interested in a tax-efficient way to back smaller companies may wish to consider the Sentinel EIS portfolio as an option in order to obtain controlled exposure into this exciting asset class where we can look to offer a diversified EIS investment portfolio. The Government introduced this scheme as a way to encourage private investment into earlier stage companies as an alternative to those listed on the AIM or Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.

Through a combination of what we view as quality investment management experience and a unique insight into the financial advisory landscape, the managed portfolio seeks to create the opportunity for professional investors to take advantage of the EIS framework and its generous incentives offered through the current tax legislation.

The opportunity to invest in the range of growth companies presented through the Sentinel EIS is, we believe, compelling. Sentinel EIS portfolio companies are subject to what we view as rigorous due diligence and specialist scrutiny by both sector specific and financial expertise. In turn this is supported by an effective monitoring framework that is intended to continue throughout the life cycle of the investment opportunity.
