How does SyndicateRoom's Access EIS Fund compare?

By comparison, SyndicateRoom's Access EIS fund builds investors a large portfolio of 50+ companies across all sectors, co-investing with experienced angel investors who have an average IRR of 42%. Our model is based on our proprietary analysis of the UK startup market, which showed that on average, the market grows by 28% each year. With large portfolios, and a large network of angels providing access to the best deals, earlier, we aim to replicate that annual growth for our investors while mitigating risk. This data-driven approach aims to work around the limitations of a single fund manager attempting to pick winners.

Our minimum investment is £5,000.
