In this in-depth interview, Robert takes us through the five step process an EIS manager typically goes through to put together, run and eventually exit a portfolio of EIS investments. He covers sourcing deal flow, selecting opportunities, structuring deals, ongoing management and finally (and most importantly!) exiting investments. We discuss the numbers involved, the challenges encountered at each step and how EIS managers overcome them. Finally, we get his opinion on the future of the EIS scheme in the light of the recent changes to the legislation governing the scheme.
