Octopus has raised and invested more than £800 million in Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)-qualifying companies since 2004, through two products:
- Octopus EIS: invests in smaller, unquoted UK companies and targets capital preservation.
- Octopus Eureka EIS: invests in early-stage unquoted or AIM-listed UK companies with the potential for significant capital growth.
Both Octopus EIS and Octopus Eureka EIS are currently closed for new investment.
Please note that these investments place capital at risk and investors may not get back the full amount they invest. EIS shares may also be difficult to sell. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future, and tax reliefs depend on the EIS maintaining its qualifying status.
