Last week Hardman & Co were joined by Dan Rodwell from GrowthInvest, Richard Hoskins from Kin Capital, Henwick Park’s Robert Drysdale and GBI Publishing Director Alex Sullivan in a Round Table Seminar as part of our New Entrant Network initiative.
As part of the launch of the non-AIM Panel Service, last week we hosted a Round Table event bringing together professionals form across the industry to discuss the EIS market and its challenges. Hardman & Co’s Vilma Pabiliontye commented “Some of these fund managers will have been investing for many years, but have only recently launched an (S)EIS fund, so they may not know all the relevant parties. In particular, they may have never raised funds from advisers which is a different ball game to HNWs and direct investor investing.”
The event was featured in GBI Magazine, where Andrew Sullivan explained ‘In their work in the EIS sector, Hardman have recognised that more can and should be done to support new entrants if this market is to grow. Recently new EIS fund managers or those looking to set up a new fund need to know all the constituent parts necessary for a successful launch, and what different audiences are looking for.’
