Parkwalk are delighted to have won ‘Best EIS Fund Manager’ for 2018 at the annual EIS Association Awards. This is the 3rd year in a row that we have won this prodigious award.
The judges commented that Parkwalk were ‘An impressive manager with a strong track record and regular exits. Exactly what the regulator is looking for helping create new innovative businesses and funding new start ups’
2018 was a busy year for Parkwalk (as can be seen here), raising over £70m across our managed funds from over 1,000 investors. We would like to thank all our investors, and apologies for the over 6,500 EIS3 certificates we sent out to investors!
We invested £64m into our portfolio, of which 82% was invested in the ‘golden triangle’ of Oxford-Cambridge-London. 2018 witnessed various challenges, especially on the AIM market, but our management teams continue to turn some of the UK’s leading edge innovation into commercial successes, and would like to thank all our portfolio companies for their hard work.
2019 is set to be a milestone year for the UK, certainly politically, but regardless of the Brexit outcome we believe our portfolio is well positioned to generate attractive returns for our investors. And certainly our investment strategy is at the forefront of the government’s industrial strategy in terms of supporting UK R&D.
Thank you to the EIS Association for a great event and to the judges for the Parkwalk award.
