The Thurton EI portfolio is an opportunity to take a stake in a diverse but coherent portfolio of ethical businesses. Unlike new funds, the portfolio has already acquired a stake in a number of interesting businesses and the performance and prospects for each can be evaluated before investing in them. This gives an investor several key advantages:
The opportunity to invest in an ethical and sustainable future
A mix of businesses to spread the risk
A mix of business finance profiles allowing for both revenue returns and capital gains
The opportunity to track major investment opportunities from the inside, and gauging if and when is the right time to take a stake in them directly
The value of the portfolio is reassessed on a regular basis taking into account presence of IP, development and robustness of the business plans, market research carried out and reaction from prospective customers. Although notoriously difficult to judge this gives a current projection of £400,000 income per annum by 2015 and a capital value of around £125m.
