Why invest in unlisted companies?

Investing in unlisted companies can be extremely exciting and rewarding for many reasons. Investments are made for three primary reasons:

  • To generate a financial return:
    Remember, many of the businesses listed of GrowthFunders are SEIS and EIS compliant, which means investors can benefit from some very generous tax reliefs.
  • To put something back:
    Many investors are experienced business people and entrepreneurs in their own right. They want to help other talented entrepreneurs realise their potential.
  • To support someone:
    Many of the businesses will be supported by friends and family. Listing and investing via GrowthFunders formalises this type of investment in a cost-effective way and opens the opportunity to a wider market.
