Hardman & Co is leading a new initiative to support (S)EIS funds entering the investment market. It has brought together a wide range of professional services providers with the specific aim of advising, educating and supporting new funds at the start of their journey. By understanding at the outset all the elements needed for a successful launch, the new entrant (anyone who is launching or has recently launched an (S)EIS fund for the first time ) is in a better position to come to market faster and in a more co-ordinated way.

Aston Lark is delighted to be the exclusive insurance broker within this network. Eloise Ellis, Business Development Director at Aston Lark Financial Institutions says, “We have been providing advice and supporting (S)EIS funds for several years and have seen new entrants grow to become major players.  We are passionate about supporting new entrants from the very start of their journey, and so are delighted to be part of this exciting new network, which we believe will provide invaluable support to new entrants given the experience and expertise of the firms involved. ”

Vilma Pabilionyte of Hardman & Co said: “There are record numbers of new funds being created. We have come to realise that they all need help to set up and gain traction quickly. They need to understand the market as well as the available distribution methods. By bringing together providers of all different functions, and the right advice on what the market needs, we think that we can make an important difference to these companies and increase their chances of success.”
