Fund in Focus - Vala EIS Portfolio

Successful investors, but entrepreneurs first

Introduction

The Vala EIS Portfolio allows investors to become a shareholder in a portfolio of 6-10 small companies with big plans for growth, chosen by an experienced group of experienced entrepreneurs. The Fund will invest across a range of sectors in to companies run by founders who see building their business as their life’s mission. The Vala Team’s job is to empower them to turn their ideas and businesses in to successful companies and give them a competitive edge as they grow.

Background

This Fund was created to invest in companies run by skilled entrepreneurs, who have the potential to build exceptional businesses.

The Vala EIS Portfolio builds on the expertise of a group of serial entrepreneurs, who over many years have given blood, sweat and tears to create, build and sell businesses across various industries. They have invested around £20m of their money in to early-stage high-growth businesses and generated an aggregate return of nearly 3x.

FUND HIGHLIGHTS

Run by seasoned entrepreneurs.

At the heart of the Vala EIS Portfolio is a team of seasoned and successful entrepreneurs. Over decades of experience in industry and international finance, they have created, built and sold many innovative businesses in the UK, Europe and across the world.

The Vala Team invests alongside you

Vala believes in putting its money where its mouth is. That’s why the Vala representatives on the Fund’s Investment Committee invest their own money in to the Vala EIS Portfolio.

Uniquely simple and low fee structure

The Fund invests 100% of each investor’s subscription into EIS-qualifying companies, collecting an initial 6% fee from the companies rather than from the investor. There are also no annual management fees and no additional transaction or arrangement fees hidden in the small print – just a performance fee, designed to make sure the Fund’s interests are aligned with its investors. 

Vala Capital will earn a performance fee, equal to 20% of any sale proceeds exceeding 100% of the amount invested.
