Tax Enhanced Services

Reviews and insight into tax enhanced products that enable advisers to offer these products with confidence. This embraces EIS, SEIS, BR and VCT products.

Tax Enhanced products are an increasingly important part of providing a diversified investment portfolio and for financial planning. There is growing demand from clients, and the government is clearly supportive of them.

MiFID II makes it clear that advisers need to understand the nature of the products they are offering, so that they can match it to the risk profile and interests of their clients. Our reviews are designed to help advisers do this, so that they can recommend the right products with confidence.

We work with providers of EIS, SEIS, VCT and BR products to produce independent reviews.
