The Jenson SEIS & EIS Fund, an early adopter of SEIS investing in 2012, has now invested in over 80 companies with a value in excess of £12 million. Jenson Funding Partners (JFP) supports the nurturing of these companies with both original investment via the SEIS and then follow on funding via the EIS. In addition, by accessing a team of over 30 Finance Directors in Jenson Solutions – their sister company – and contractual arrangements with other skilled professionals, we offer a lifecycle investment programme for our investee companies.
More and more fund managers realise that earlier stage and high growth companies, whilst an attractive target area for investment due to the potential above average capital gains, require greater support and assistance than more mature investments. Partnering with Jenson Solutions, Foresight and Thompson Taraz, JFP has addressed these concerns through its role as an experienced provider of Finance Directors and support services to high growth companies.
Jenson wants to be more than just a ‘seat on the board’ investment house. Our mandated support services concentrates additional support and nurturing at the areas most needed, provided by individuals best able to give it, at a time when there is greatest risk of failure. Detailed below is a schematic that outlines the support structure:
5 years on and Jenson can now demonstrate both an exit from an investee company in Fund 1 and positive re-valuations in funds 2,3 and 4. These valuations are independently secured and made when external investors invest in Jenson SEIS companies
Important Information – *Performance is based on the combination of realised and unrealised value. Investments are illiquid until any of the underlying Investee Companies are sold or float on a stock market.Fund 1 has now achieved, as reported in the last ‘Fund in Focus’ a distribution of cash, with additional consideration on achieving the ‘earn out’ targets over the next two years. This distribution was achieved with the sales of the investee company ‘Twizoo’ to SkyScanner in September 2017. 1 = Original NAV: anything over 1 is potential positive returns.
