Thank you for your question.

Pension contribution will get you tax relief at marginal rate.

You can consider enterprise investment scheme as investment under EIS gives income tax relief at 30%.

Couple of questions: Are there any other options with lower risk profile? What are the other options like syndicateroom ? Any reason you would recommend EIS vs SEIS?
Expert: replied 19 days ago.

Thank you for your reply.

Synidicateroom is a platform... I don't know much about it and therefore not in a position to advise.

I have not recommended EIS vs SEIS.. both of these can be considered as they both offer tax relief on investment.

I am not aware of other lower risk options that give tax relief on initial investment.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
