Targeting Profit with a Purpose

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the case for sustainable investing has grown stronger, demonstrated by the significant performance of global sustainable indices and ESG funds as well as the swell of support from ordinary investors and clients who increasingly see profit and purpose as a central goal.

Impact investing, which seeks market rates of return by investing in companies that have a positive social and environmental impact on society, is at the forefront of the sustainable investment movement. Many  organisations, large and small have entered the space, encouraged by a surge of support from governments and business leaders.

There is now a growing pool of investors who stand to benefit from a broad range of profitable asset groups, focused on addressing problems across societal inequality, healthcare and the environment.

According to a June 2020 survey, conducted by the Global Impact Investing Network ‘GIIN’ survey, 88% of impact investors report meeting or exceeding their financial expectations, and a whopping 99% said they have met or exceeded their impact expectations.  

Triple Point Impact EIS Service

The Triple Point Impact EIS Service is part of this expanding market opportunity, known as impact investing. The service targets significant capital growth by investing in fast-growing, innovative companies that have a positive social impact and which qualify for EIS tax reliefs.

The Service invests in companies that make a positive contribution to one of four themes: health, environment, children & young people and inequality — with each investor holding a portfolio of 8 to 12 companies, ensuring diversification within the investment too.

Financial returns are targeted by investing in unlisted growth companies that are already generating revenue and have the potential to provide a significant capital return over a four-to-seven-year period. Depending on their circumstances, investors can also benefit from tax reliefs associated with EIS, including income tax relief of 30%, inheritance tax relief and tax-free growth.

Recent Impact Investments

The Impact EIS Service has invested into two new companies that have been identified as fast growing and having a positive impact in one of our four themes.

Cyan Forensics Ltd provides digital forensics software to help police forces find evidence on computers many times faster than before, doing in minutes what can currently take days. This technology is often used in child sex exploitation and counter terrorism cases to find evidence faster, reducing risks, and protecting citizens. 

Kafoodle is an award-winning food tech company on a mission to improve health globally by connecting people with the food they need. Kafoodle launched in 2016 with a cloud-based B2B SaaS platform to help Hospitality clients digitise their recipes and menus to comply with new EU food allergen information legislation. Additional functionality was released enabling clients to analyse the nutritional make-up of their food, and communicate digitally with end customers.

Risk Warning: As with all investments, our products place capital at risk. There is no guarantee that target returns will be achieved and investors may get back less than they invested. Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each client and is subject to change. Tax reliefs depend on the EIS maintaining its qualifying status.
