The Committed Capital Growth EIS Portfolio Service is an evergreen fund offering investors the opportunity to invest into a portfolio of 8-12 actively managed, growth stage, post-revenue (over £1m) technology companies, whilst also benefitting from the availability of the generous tax reliefs afforded by the Enterprise Investment Scheme.
We are a growth stage venture capital investor, and our investment strategy has remained unchanged since 2001.
We invest in best in class high growth, EIS qualifying post revenue technology companies (over £1m) in a range of industry sectors where we believe the potential for significant capital growth exists, and where we can offer hands-on support to facilitate and accelerate growth before ultimately helping identify potential exit opportunities.
Our primary objective is to create attractive returns for investors from high quality investments, through the careful selection of potential investee companies, excellence in corporate finance skills and active support of portfolio companies.
The Committed Capital Syndicate comprises a group of around 150 highly successful entrepreneurs and leading business people. They introduce investment opportunities to Committed Capital and our investors, provide support and guidance to the portfolio companies, and invest their own money in the Funds.
We involve members of our Advisory Board and Syndicate at an early stage in our investment decision making process, often engaging members with relevant industry experience as part of our initial due diligence. This enables us quickly to identify investments that we believe to be outstanding into which the Committed Capital Funds can invest.
Investing through the Syndicate allows you to build your own portfolio of investments , details of which are available via the online platform where you can manage your investments, access details of our investee companies, see company updates, access your EIS3 certificates, and obtain instant portfolio valuations.

The Committed Capital Fast Track Fund LLP Fund (the “Fund”) aims to generate attractive returns from investments in UK based, post revenue, growth stage technology companies with a clear route to profitability and exit.

The Committed Capital Knowledge Intensive EIS Fund will replicate the investment strategy of our Committed Capital EIS Funds, investing in high growth, knowledge intensive, EIS qualifying, post revenue technology companies (typically over £1m), across a range of industry sectors where we believe the potential for significant capital growth exists, and where we can offer strategic hands-on support to facilitate and accelerate growth before ultimately helping identify potential exit opportunities.
Why is this of potential interest to investors and advisers?
Tax planning and administrative advantages. A Knowledge Intensive (KI) Approved Fund Structure tackles two administrative issues for EIS investors, uncertain allotment dates for tax planning and the administrative burden of claiming tax relief with multiple EIS3 certificates.
With a KI fund, on the admin side, instead of receiving an EIS3 certificate for each investee company, the fund manager retains all EIS3 forms and issues just 1 EIS5 certificate.
With KI approved funds, tax relief applies at the date the fund closes, so for example if the fund closes on 31 March 2022, then an investor has certainty that they will receive full tax relief on their net subscription in 2021-22 even though the money has not yet been invested. They can also treat the investment as carried back to the previous year.
