Wednesday 18 December SEIS deployment lined up by Worth Capital


Having completed an EIS deployment in November, Amersham Investment Management and Worth Capital are planning an SEIS deployment from the Start-Up Series Fund on Wednesday 18 December.

This will include all investors with cleared subscriptions at close of play Monday 16 December.

The Start-Up Series Fund invests in the winners of the Start-Up Series – a monthly UK wide competition judged by the entrepreneurial and commercial founders of Worth Capital. The team there hunt for innovation in underserved and/or growth markets, where there is the potential to build a loved brand.

Investors in next week’s tranche will receive a typically diverse early stage portfolio:

Two consumer businesses

  • a very on trend beauty brand with early revenues but still low valuation.
  • a more proven product with a sustainability angle and 12 months revenue.

Two B2B businesses

  • a SaaS with tightly defined, easily targeted market and built out product.
  • a hardware and software tech with a huge global potential market, some IP (currently in patent process), yet to build the product.

Worth Capital have a very strong performance on processing tax certificates. Although they cannot promise (as they are dependent on HMRC) they may have tax certificates back to advisors before the end of January – perfect for any investor looking to carry back.

Maybe you or your client has been nervous about the election? If so, see the result on Friday morning, have the application in and cleared by Monday, the cash can be put to work immediately, and the reliefs can be claimed quickly.
