Ten prestigious awards were presented at this black-tie extravaganza which included a drinks reception, three course gourmet dinner and wine, top expert after dinner speakers as well as the dedicated awards ceremony. David Newman –  CIDG’s Commercial Director said; “the run up to this 2-day event attracted wide scale publicity in the specialist investor media and high press coverage in the national and trade press post event, hence the reasoning behind our decision to use the event as a launching platform for “Compare Alternative Investments Dot Guru”. has been specifically designed for individuals resident in the UK and IFAs interested in the SEIS, EIS, VCT and BPR alternative investment marketplace, bringing together all these opportunities into one searchable and comparable database.

It further provides subscribers with a unique ‘Guru Opinion’, Technical report and ‘Guru Score’ for each opportunity.

As the Promoters do not pay for either listing or reports and CIDG does not offer transactions or introduction to the Promoters, there is no financial linkage between the parties. Therefore any opinion offered by the ‘Guru Team’ is completely objective and unbiased.

John Marsden a Fund Manager of many years’ standing and CIDG’s Chairman, said: ” I am extremely pleased that there is finally an independent source of information and unbiased professional opinion available in the market, which in no small part was why I accepted the position of non-executive Chairman at CIDG”.
