Founded in 2013, MICAP provides quality independent due diligence and research into the tax-advantaged investment market. All of MICAP’s research is provided via its user-friendly platform, the MICAP Fund Finder, specifically designed for advisers considering EIS, VCT, SEIS, BR & SITR investments.
“The MICAP Fund Finder enables advisers to search quickly and efficiently through hundreds of offers to identify those meeting their criteria.”
Advisers can access current data, investment documents and MICAP Reviews on hundreds of tax-advantaged investments. Its easy-to-use research and due diligence tool will enable advisers to quickly and efficiently search, filter and compare the “whole-of-market” to find offers meeting their precise requirements.
“MICAP’s due diligence rests on a thorough understanding and evaluation of the tax-advantaged investment universe.”
At the core of MICAP’s research are the MICAP Reviews. These are completed by a dedicated in-house team of analysts and are typically a 20 to 25 page document that sets out the key areas that advisers should consider.
The second strand of MICAP’s research is their Impact Assessment Scoring system. The Impact Scores are designed to be an objective assessment of an investment and its manager, based on the manager’s answers to a detailed Impact Assessment Questionnaire (IAQ).
Finally, MICAP also provides Panel Support Services to help advisory firms and their investment committees to identify and maintain recommended product lists or panels. These services are tailored to each advisory firm’s specific needs, depending on their own in-house resources, the types of investments they wish to consider and the level of involvement they require from MICAP.
