Due Diligence

At GrowthInvest we offer businesses the ability to select from various levels of due diligence in order to increase their chances of a successful fundraise. This enables investors to feel comfortable with the level of scrutiny a business has received.

In addition, the tiers enable advisors and their clients to easily filter and select only those investment propositions that meet their compliance requirements. All businesses have, as a minimum requirement, been risk-assessed by a panel of analysts and have confirmed SEIS/EIS eligibility by HMRC. Investors are able to request that a business undergoes a higher level of due diligence by selecting the appropriate option under the pledge button.

Please ensure that the before reviewing any Due Diligence report you are aware of the potential limitations of such reports as set out in the Risk Warning and the Investor terms and conditions and the notices contained in each report.
