The Invicta Media EIS Fund

What makes the Invicta Media EIS different?

The Invicta Media EIS uses the depth of experience and knowledge of the Invicta team within the media sector. The changes to EIS legislation mean investors now need to take on significant risk in order to obtain the generous tax reliefs on offer; meaning that sector knowledge and experience in assessing investee companies is more crucial than ever before.

Through our knowledge and experience, we have already identified a number of potential investee companies, all of which are revenue generating, and backed by highly regarded management teams with extensive track records within the media sector.
