A presentation from Intelligent Partnership
on the current market landscape
20-minute presentations from a selection
of investment providers
Scheduled breaks allow you to network with investment
specialists from each provider on their stands
The content is based upon feedback from providers and attendees over what they want to hear discussed. Each presenter is asked to cover the same key issues that we know are top concerns for advisers:
THE INVESTMENT PROVIDER: ownership, length of time in the market, relevant AUM, performance track record and financial strength
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE: growth, capital preservation, income, or a combination of the three, and the targeted level of annual returns
UNDERLYING INVESTMENTS: What are they, how will they generate returns and how is liquidity achieved? The process to identify suitable investments
CHARGES: charges borne by both the investor and the investees during the product’s lifetime, including performance, admin, and deal fees
TRACK RECORD: AUM and the performance track record of the product
COVID-19: how they’ve dealt with the fall out from the pandemic including underlying investments, the impact on performance, and actions taken
DIFFERENTIATION: what differentiates the product from others in the market
ADVISER/INVESTOR SUPPORT: how advisers/investors are supported on the due diligence and investment journey into the product
What advisers have said about our previous Showcase events
There is little enough education on this highly technical area of the market, so when you do have a chance to learn from and speak to 8 different providers at the same event, on the same day why wouldn’t you attend? A well-structured, informative and well run conference, which was an excellent use of my time.
What a great and succinct way to meaningfully compare providers and get an understanding of what they do, how they do it and what they charge for doing so.
A very well run event giving exposure to a large number of top providers in the BPR sector. Well worth attending if you are looking to research providers or increase knowledge in this area.

Oxford Capital aims to make EIS investments accessible, easy to understand and hassle-free for investors and their financial advisers. The firm has two distinct EIS strategies – Investment in high growth companies from a range of industries and investment in companies which own infrastructure assets. 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.

The Symvan Group (“Symvan”) incorporates Symvan Capital Limited, with an asset-management arm and Symvan Securities, providing corporate finance advisory services.
Symvan Capital is an investment fund advisor dedicated to finding start-up businesses suitable for investment and then supporting them when funds have been provided. We provide an alternative investment approach to SME investing with the aim of delivering superior returns.
Symvan’s principals bring sector-focused SME corporate finance experience, rather than a background of just traditional asset management. Our tax efficient technology-focused portfolios are relatively small compared to competitors, allowing us to devote greater resource and time for the success of the investee company, rather than a short-term view by maximizing the funds raised. Whilst our decisions are always in the best interests of the companies’ shareholders, our focus rests primarily on helping investee companies achieve the necessary follow-on capital they will require to grow, ‘cross-fertilising’ companies within our own network of professional and industry contacts, and ensuring each has the advice and support needed to successfully navigate the pitfalls every start-up typically faces.
TIME provides tax efficient investment solutions and we’re proud to say we’re rather good at it – our original Inheritance Tax service boasts an impressive 22 year track record of successfully achieving Inheritance Tax savings for our investors. What stands us apart in our market is our focus on seeking consistent stable returns which we deliver through a defensive investment strategy. We pride ourselves on offering real transparency around our products, what we invest in and what the risks are. We’re dedicated to supporting the adviser market and we recognise that our services require professional advice, which is why we don’t accept direct investments. We also have a nationwide sales team on hand to assist financial advisers in identifying solutions for their clients’ financial concerns, dealing with technical queries and delivering one-to-one support.
