How to invest in private equity

There are a number of ways of gaining access to this attractive asset class: direct investment via friends and family, crowd funding platforms, limited partnerships, venture capital trusts (“VCT”) enterprise investment schemes (“EIS”) and business property relief (“BPR”) portfolios to name but a few. Other routes include feeder funds to institutional private equity funds (fund of funds), investment trusts or listed companies specialising in private equity.

If you do not have the time and experience to carry out detailed due diligence, you should consider investing via a portfolio or fund, employing the services of an investment manager who has experience in the area that you are considering.

We recommend that you invest via a series of investment portfolios with different managers taking care to select experienced managers who have a proven track record.

The managers that we work with at Kuber may review hundreds of business plans during a year and invest in just 5 companies.
