Parkwalk are delighted to have won ‘Best General EIS Fund’ at Investment Week’s Tax Efficiency Awards 2018 last week, beating last year’s runner’s up prize and matching our win in 2016. Parkwalk were also highly commended in the ‘Best Exit’ category. It is always a good validation of our investment strategy to be recognised by industry peers and this latest win follows on from winning ‘Best EIS Fund’ at the EIS Association awards earlier this year, for the second year running. Investment Week’s judging panel was made up of some of the UK’s leading commentators in the sector and the awards are designed to recognise the most successful and forward-thinking providers in the areas of VCTs, EIS and BPR/IHT. The judges were impressed with the Parkwalk’s performance and scale in the EIS sector. We are the largest growth EIS fund in terms of funds raised and we continue deliver for our Parkwalk Opportunity EIS Fund investors from timely investment deployment through to generating attractive returns. Parkwalk is also at the forefront of the government’s industrial strategy in terms of supporting UK R&D. For instance, the business secretary Greg Clark recently highlighted Parkwalk’s investment in Oxbotica as a good example of the government’s industrial strategy being put into action. Thank you to Investment Week for a great event and to the judges for the Parkwalk awards.
