GrowthInvest is delighted to support Hardman & Co in their new initiative to support (S)EIS funds entering the investment market.

The network brings together a wide range of professional services providers with the specific aim of advising, educating and supporting new funds at the start of their journey. By understanding at the outset all the elements needed for a successful launch, the aim is for the new entrant to be in a better position to come to market faster and in a more coordinated way.

A new entrant is anyone who is launching or has recently launched an (S)EIS fund for the first time.


Vilma Pabilionyte of Hardman & Co said:

‘There are record numbers of new funds being created. We have come to realise that they all need help to set up and gain traction quickly. They need to understand the market as well as the available distribution methods. By bringing together providers of all different functions, and the right advice on what the market needs, we think that we can make an important difference to these companies and increase their chances of success.’


Edward Robinson, Head of Investments at GrowthInvest said:

‘We are delighted to be supporting this initiative in collaboration with Hardman & Co and partners across the industry. With a number of high-quality new funds launched in recent months, we are committed to working together to offer a diversified whole-of-market service to financial advisers and qualified investors. New funds are key to the continued success of the (S)EIS industry and we will continue to support new market entrants.’
