"The Fund seeks to invest in and provide support for technology enabled businesses"
Rajeev Saxena, Velocity Capital Advisors
The dynamics of the technology market have been transformed over the past decade. The advent of the digital economy has given innovative start-ups the ability to disrupt the way well-established industries operate, with the potential to rapidly undermine entrenched businesses and quickly achieve remarkable valuations. It is a time of opportunity for innovative companies with the products and ideas to challenge the way traditional businesses operate.
 
Velocity aims to exploit this opportunity, appraising potential investments not just for the traditional business qualities of strong management, robust operations and risk management, but also for dynamic attributes that flourish in the digital economy and technology environment, namely: innovation, scalability, agility and speed to market. The Investment Consultant will present to the Investment Manager opportunities to invest in start-up and early-stage businesses that exhibit these characteristics.
 
EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be EIS-qualifying, which makes Velocity EIS Technology Fund 3 suitable for qualifying clients who would potentially benefit from the following tax reliefs:
  • Up to 30% income tax relief
  • Tax-free investment growth
  • Capital gains deferral
  • Inheritance tax relief
  • Loss relief
Please note: EIS tax reliefs are only made available to investors because of the higher risks associated with investing in early-stage companies. Also, the availability of tax reliefs will depend on the investor's personal circumstances, and tax legislation can change in the future. See guide for further information.

Risk warning
Important information for private investors – Reliance on the information provided here to engage in any investment activity may expose an individual to a significant risk of losing all of the property or other assets invested. Your attention is drawn to the risk section contained within the Information Memorandum. Investments are typically in unquoted shares in small companies, the value of which can be volatile and are often difficult to sell. Nothing on this website constitutes investment, tax, financial, legal, regulatory, or other advice by Sapphire Capital Partners LLP.
The value of an investment may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the full amount invested, and you may therefore lose some or all of your investment.
If you are unsure of the suitability of any investment for your circumstances, please contact your independent financial advisor or other professional advisor authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) who specialises in advising on investments of this type. Tax reliefs depend on individual circumstances. There is no guarantee however that the tax reliefs (such as SEIS and/or EIS reliefs, CGT reliefs or IHT relief) will be available on any investment made or that if it is initially available, it will not be subsequently withdrawn. Any references to tax laws or rates are based on current legislation, all of which are subject to change and are provided as a guide only. Prospective investors are advised to obtain their own investment and taxation advice and should consult their own professional advisors on the implications of investing.
Investments made in investee companies via funds managed by Sapphire Capital Partners LLP may not be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). For more details, please contact us or refer to their website: https://www.fscs.org.uk
