6 February 2017, 9:31am

The continued industry leading investment performance of the Parkwalk Opportunities EIS Fund, was recognised last Wednesday at the Enterprise Investment Scheme Association (EISA) Awards. Manager, Parkwalk Advisors, won awards for both Best EIS Fund Manager and Best exit, making them the only manager to win more than one award.

Best EIS Fund Manager

Parkwalk has been been investing in growth businesses since 2010, yet in the relatively short period of time since has proved that their investment strategy of backing companies commercialising Intellectual Property can be highly profitable. According to independent research published by Tax Efficient Review, Parkwalk EIS has outperformed it’s closest competitors…

The following figures taken from Tax Efficient Review No.288 published 12th January 2017. They exclude tax relief and fees / charges.

Best exit

The EISA award for Best exit was given in recognition of Parkwalk’s investment in Cambridge CMOS Sensors Ltd. In regard to the exit, one of the judges remarked: “If there was a textbook example of an EIS exit…this would be it.”

Cambridge CMOS Sensors is the manufacturer of the world’s smallest gas sensor (just a few millimetres in size) and it’s ability to detect a variety of different gases gives it a wide variety of potential commercial uses. The precise numbers around the size of the transaction remain confidential, but have resulted in another exit for Parkwalk that in many cases has paid back >100% of an investors EIS Fund subscription, excluding tax relief, within 4 years.
