Amberside Incrementum EIS Fund

Investment Objective

A partnership with CH1 Investment Partners, who have over 10 years’ experience of investing in EIS companies. Matthew Evans and Richard Spacey ran Vestra Ventures together, and brought that experience across to CH1 when they launched the business in 2016.

This EIS invests in companies that can demonstrate a proven market for their product or service through increasing annual revenue streams, that are now looking for further capital to expand. The companies could be from any sector, as long as they have a strong board and management team, and a sensible, robust business plan that can demonstrate how they will grow revenues further to in excess of £10m annually.


  • A known portfolio of companies at time of investment
  • Quick deployment of capital (circa 3 months)
  • Managed by a combined team of experts – Amberside Capital and CH1 Investment Partners
  • ALL investee companies personally invested in by the Directors of Amberside Capital/CH1 Investment Partners on the same terms as EIS investors
