Investments

Now self certified sophisticated investors can become part of the process through the use of a variety of tax-efficient investment opportunities which are managed by our finance arm Goldfinch Entertainment. We also have an ongoing range of bespoke investment opportunities for individuals who wish to explore other avenues of involvement on either a production or company level.

The Goldfinch EIS Fund provides Investors with access to one or more companies that have received advance assurance that they qualify under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). All companies will already be established and operating in the entertainment sector prior to investment. Each individual company will spread risk across a portfolio of titles, acting as a sales agent and distributor of Film, Television and Video Games content. Each company will typically work on 8-10 projects. Where HMRC rules permit, each EIS company may also be eligible for the UK’s film, television and Video Games Tax Reliefs, also known as ‘tax credits’. The EIS companies may also benefit from incentives from grant making bodies such as the British Film Institute, Creative England and other regional television / film agencies.
