Director – Private Clients
When you’re investing in an early stage business, you want to make sure the quality of its management and the industry it’s in give it the greatest chance of success. The Oxford Capital investment team invests in sectors where the UK is considered a world leader, like financial technologies, future of retail, mobility, digital health, online marketplaces, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
We back companies that we believe have the potential to grow rapidly and become very valuable. And often we are backing serial entrepreneurs – people who have already shown that they understand what it takes to build and sell a successful company.
The Growth EIS has been independently reviewed by Hardman & Co and MICAP to provide expert, independent due diligence.
Data for 5 years to 05.10.21.Multiple shows gross performance and does not include the effect of commissions, fees or other charges. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
We invest in companies operating in industry sectors which lend themselves to rapid growth.

Key Information Document
The Oxford Capital Growth EIS is classified as a ‘Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Product’ or ‘PRIIP’. As such, we are required to produce a Key Information Document (KID), which explains certain aspects of the investment. KIDs are written in a format prescribed by the PRIIPs Regulation, to make it easier for you to compare the Oxford Capital Growth EIS with the KIDs produced for other PRIIPs.
You can view the KID here.
EIS Tax Reliefs
Income Tax relief equal to 30% of the amount invested into qualifying shares.
No Capital Gains Tax to pay on exit, provided shares held for at least three years.
Capital gains from other assets can be deferred using your EIS investment, and could be eliminated if you hold the EIS on death.
100% Inheritance Tax relief, provided you own the shares for at least two years and still own them on death.
For more information on EIS tax relief and advantages, read our EIS Relief Guide here.
Investing in small companies carries significant risks, and you should not invest in the Growth EIS unless you can afford to lose some or all of your investment.
Shares in unquoted companies are illiquid. This means you cannot withdraw your investment. You will only receive proceeds if the underlying companies are successfully sold. Not all companies will be sold for a profit.
Tax advantages are summarised based on current legislation, depend on your personal circumstances and are subject to change.
Investment should only be made once you have read the full Information Memorandum, particularly the sections which cover risks and charges.
