WEBINAR: How Mercia’s funds leverage each other – EIS, VCT, MEIF

Join us to understand how Mercia uses different funds to support small companies through their growth stages.

This conversational webinar will provide an overview of a small number of the Mercia funds, which work together to form part of Mercia’s Complete Connected Capital strategy.

Our webinar series has been focused on our EIS funds, but the Northern VCTs joined the Mercia group in December 2019.

The investment stage and sector of the Mercia EIS and the Northern VCT overlap, and they have invested in the same company previously, and this will certainly increase in the future.

The Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) is a government-funded (via the British Business Bank) proof of concept fund, that makes earlier stage investments in Midlands-based companies. A large number of the MEIF investments are alongside the EIS fund, and recently we have successfully leveraged the Future Fund to invest in MEIF/EIS co-investments.

This webinar was hosted by Dr. Paul Mattick (Head of Sales and Private Investor Relations, EIS Funds), Julian Dennard (Fund Principal, MEIF) and Stephen Johnson (Investment Manager, VCT)

Join us on the 10th November when Chris Kilroy and Paul Mattick discuss the recent valuation uplifts in the EIS portfolio and the sale of two companies for over 8x cost of investment in the last three months.
