Our History

Calculus is a pioneer of EIS, having created the first UK approved EIS fund in 1999. Since then, we have gone on to launch a generalist EIS Fund every year and multiple VCT share issues, and in October 2022 we launched our first Knowledge Intensive EIS Fund.

We have built a strong reputation as an investor in EIS and VCT Qualifying Companies through our multi-award-winning Calculus EIS Funds and the Calculus VCT. Our focus on capital appreciation, a diligent investment and monitoring process and our record of profitable exits distinguishes us from other EIS and VCT fund managers.
