Bonus episode: Reform, reform, reform | Andy Davidson of Nova

27 Oct 2020 / Podcast Tax Advantaged

By Dr Brian Moretta

As a relative newcomer to the EIS industry, Andy Davidson of We Are Nova sees it a little differently to many of us. For the last year or so, he's been challenging the industry to create market funds for EIS, akin to index funds for equities and bonds.

In this episode of The EIS Navigator, Brian and Andy discuss what that would mean for investors – not only the advantages but also some of the challenges of making it happen.

This is the second part of the conversation with Andy, following on from the preceding episode where he discussed his investment philosophy and the five reasons startups fail.
