EIS and VCTs have been described by several guests as one of finance’s best kept secrets, which makes the job of advisers challenging when they recommend them. Stephen Jones has a lot of experience dealing with these, and has won several awards for the quality of his services in the tax-advantaged area.
We had a really good discussion which will be split over two episodes. In this one, Stephen talks about the framework that he uses for giving advice and how and where tax-advantaged investments fit into that. We discuss some of the issues around suitability and how to choose between EIS and VCTs. We also talk about product selection at a high level, but will dig into that more in next week’s bonus episode.
