We are delighted to announce that GrowthInvest has won the ‘Spirit of EIS’ Award at the 14th Annual Enterprise Investment Scheme Association (EISA) Awards, for our outstanding and groundbreaking work across our GrowthInvest Adviser Hour – the educational webinar series for the tax-efficient investment market.

The EISA Awards denote excellence and were presented to firms, advisers, companies, individuals and journalists across the sector that have achieved a recognisable and outstanding performance within the context of EIS & SEIS schemes across 2018.

The category and criteria for the ‘Spirit of EIS’ award was designed to recognise a new initiative that has made a difference in enhancing or growing the EIS industry – where in areas of communication, education or product development.

Mark Brownridge, Director General of the EIS Association, says: “The revamping of this year’s awards gave us an additional and even greater insight into the significant amount of work being undertaken in the EIS/SEIS industry. It is only when you take on a role such as an EISA judge that you appreciate the breadth and diversity of work that this industry generates.”

As a firm, our vision for the Adviser Hour is to provide an easily accessible online educational forum for advisers to learn about tax-efficient investment, and that by doing so, we would be a catalyst for growth of the industry by driving engagement with a broader spread of the adviser market that currently attend roadshows and events.

Mark Brownridge presented the award on behalf of the EISA Awards judging panel, commenting:

“The GrowthInvest Adviser Hour is a significant educational initiative, which has the potential to be a new avenue to grow a whole new audience for EIS across financial planners. We are delighted to present the GrowthInvest team with this award.”

GrowthInvest Chief Executive, Daniel Rodwell commented: “We are delighted to have won the Spirit of EIS Award tonight – it is a real testament to the hard work of our team and the contributions from across the GrowthInvest network. The spirit of EIS is at the heart of everything we do, in playing our part in supporting the brightest young businesses within the UK. Our platform simplifies the process of advising on tax-efficient investments and the Adviser Hour provides education around the products themselves. Our goal is to make this compelling investment category more accessible to advisers and their clients.”

Congratulations to all other finalists and nominees on the awards, which can be found by clicking here.

Our thanks go to Mark Brownridge, Martin Fox and the EIS Association for the awards ceremony and time invested into the judging process; to Capital Connections for their studio time and production facilities; and to our fantastic hosts, Lawrence Gosling and Catherine McQueen.

Finally, a special thanks to the Adviser Hour community of panel guests, advisers and investors who have given their insights and thought leadership to make the series a success so far. We look forward to delivering a fourth Adviser Hour series later this year! To register/login to the Adviser Hour Portal, please follow here.
