What is a SEIS/EIS Fund?

A SEIS/EIS fund is typically a discretionary investment management service managed by a FCA approved investment manager (such as Sapphire). A SEIS/EIS fund is not a legal entity but is typically a group of individual bare trusts to enable subscription monies to be held on behalf of investors under a nominee arrangement; with each investor being the sole beneficiary of each bare trust. This is collectively known as a SEIS/EIS fund.

SEIS and EIS Funds

The typical structure of a SEIS/EIS fund:
  • A SEIS/EIS fund is typically an investment management service conducted on a discretionary basis by an investment manager;

  • The service is normally conducted subject to the terms of an investment management agreement;

  • By agreeing to invest in a fund, investors appoint the investment manager to invest their subscriptions on a discretionary basis into companies selected by the investment manager;

  • A SEIS/EIS fund is not a legal entity;

  • EIS and SEIS funds fall within the definition of “Alternative Investment Fund” for the purposes of the AIFMD; and

  • A SEIS/EIS fund is not considered to be a collective investment scheme as defined in section 235 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
