Edinburgh 4 May. The Chartered Accountants Ireland, Ulster Society, will hear a talk at thei annual conference by Nelson Gray on the “Scottish Model” for angel investing, and what elements may be appropriate to adopt in Ireland. Scotland is recognised internationally as an exemplar of best practice, notably in the effective combination of group investing structures and directed public support policy, notably via the Scottish Co Investment Fund, an fund model now copied by a number of other countries. It is notable that the level of angel investing in Scotland is significantly greater per head of population than other regions within the UK. Nelson will explain how the Scottish Government has used European Funding to build angel capacity and competence.
