Launched in 2010, the Guinness EIS Service has focused on making value investments in EIS qualifying companies, whilst the Guinness AIM EIS Service, launched in 2013, invests in AIM-listed companies that are eligible for Enterprise Investment Scheme relief.
Guinness EIS will remain open all year round and we target having subscriptions fully invested within 12 months of receipt of funds. We are targeting a return of £1.25 per £1.00 invested.
The Guinness EIS Investor Agreement has been revised and updated as of December 2017 – please click here to view
