Zenzic Estate Planning Service

Lending to UK real estate.


What is the aim of this service?

"Our key aim is to help clients pass on as much of their estate as possible to their children and grandchildren."

ZSL Capital Limited

ZEPS aims to shelter your estate from IHT after investments have been held for a period of two years whilst allowing you access to your funds if you give us reasonable notice, subject to prevailing liquidity restraints of the Direct Lending Companies, their assets, their liabilities or the financial markets. Securing the value of your investment is our top priority. The Zenzic Estate Planning Service offers you the choice to balance your need for growth and income by investing in lending businesses managed by the expert team of ZSL Capital.

Investment Strategy

View our Legal Policy

Investments will only be made if they comply with the Zenzic Fair Dealing Policy. This means that the ZEPS DFM will only make investments in Direct Lending Companies with a published lending policy which complies with one of the strategies described above so that the interests of all investors in the same Direct Lending Company are aligned.

It also means that investments will only be made when the sums invested can be properly utilised in the business of the Direct Lending Companies within a reasonable period and that investments will only be cashed in when their withdrawal will not damage the efficacy of the business of the Direct Lending Companies or the financial or taxation position of other investors.

Not all investors will have the same objectives. That is why ZEPS allows you to tailor your investments so that you can, with advice from your IFA, manage your wealth in a way which is suitable for your personal circumstances. By selecting the right portfolio, you can balance your potential need to:

  • make longer-term investments in shares which offer BR from IHT once they have been held for two years; and
  • withdraw capital, should you need to do so, which also offers income returns

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 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 take their own investment and taxation advice and should consult their own professional advisors on the implications of investing.
