We now know that the hole in the ozone layer is closing as a result of the 1985 Montreal Protocol. Are you like me, and thought it had closed long ago? But it really is good news, and we have more to bring you this month with the opening of the Fifth Round of the EIS Climate Change Fund on 12th January.
This is an encouraging event in the world of climate change investment. The success of the fund is noteworthy, as is its capacity to make a difference in the fight against climate change.
The Fund, which has been running since 2020, is an opportunity for you to co-invest with Green Angel Syndicate – that is to spread your investment into the 10-15 EIS deals that the Syndicate expects to complete in the 12 months following the closing date.
Since 2017, Green Angel Syndicate has invested £26.7m into 34 portfolio companies, and to date, the performance of this portfolio is excellent – with an IRR of 25%* (based on TVPI, including one exit so far) – reflecting our collective ability to access and to select attractive investment opportunities. Not a single company in the portfolio has gone bust to date.
Our EIS Climate Change Fund invests alongside the Syndicate in all deals completed by the Syndicate.
If you would like to involve yourself in the fight, please do consider investing in Round 5 of the Climate Change Fund. You are welcome to apply for the Investment Memorandum, or equally an online meeting, if you prefer. Do get in touch, it would be great to hear from you.
