The Oxford Capital Growth EIS portfolio backs established businesses to support their expansion. Oxford Capital builds each investor a portfolio of around 8-10 companies, providing the tax advantages of the EIS whilst mitigating some of the risk of smaller company investments through diversification. The Oxford Capital Infrastructure EIS invests in companies which own and operate infrastructure assets, such as renewable energy installations, earning revenues through long-term contracts. Because the investments are asset-backed, the Infrastructure EIS has a lower risk profile than some other EIS investments.
