Fyzz ISA adds Hollywood glitz and glamour to UK savings

RELATED TOPICS​

Investors can now add a touch of movie star glamour to their savings following the launch of The Fyzz ISA, the UK’s first innovative finance ISA specialising in funding film and entertainment projects.

The Fyzz ISA (fyzzisa.com) is offered through The Fyzz Facility Capital plc and its sister company The Fyzz Facility Limited, an asset-backed lender to the entertainment industry with a 7-year history of loan based investments into Feature Film and TV projects. The Fyzz ISA offers returns of up to 5 per cent per annum over a 60-month term, as well as the normal tax-benefits of ISA products.
 
Savers will be able to follow the projects they are supporting from pre-production all the way to the big screen and participate in a way never before possible for this uncorrelated asset class. 
 
They can be reassured by the fact that all Fyzz ISA loans made into projects are secured and asset-backed (linked to contracted revenue streams and distribution agreements), so returns are not dependent on the ultimate execution or box office performance of a given project. 
 
Investments are diversified across a large number of individual entertainment lending opportunities to create a portfolio that further mitigates saver risk.
 
The experts behind The Fyzz ISA have long track records of producing successful film projects, and through The Fyzz Facility have invested more than USD280m into over 200 feature film loans since 2010.  As well as co-financing films such as Wind River starring Jeremy Renner of Avengers and Martin Scorsese’s Silence.
 
Recent in-house productions include the US box office success 47 Meters Down and Jackie Chan’s The Foreigner, which has notched up over USD135 million box office worldwide and is shortly to be released through Netflix in the UK (15 December, 2017). Upcoming projects financed and produced by The Fyzz Facility include the thriller Three Seconds starring Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Clive Owen; The Strangers: Prey at Night starring Christina Hendricks (Mad Men); Destination Wedding starring Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder and Final Score starring Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Pierce Brosnan.
 
Wayne Marc Godfrey, joint CEO of The Fyzz Facility, says: “When we started The Fyzz Facility in 2010, we had the mission to build a business that would support the creation and production of world class independent films through a debt based lending strategy that offers investor returns competitive with other alternative sectors.  Over the last seven years The Fyzz Facility has more than made good on its intention and has established itself as one of the preeminent lenders in the industry.”  
 
Joint CEO Robert Jones, adds: “Through The Fyzz ISA, for the first time, we are offering UK savers the opportunity to participate in this exciting investment arena at a much lower entry point that has previously been possible. With as little as GBP2,000 (capped at GBP20,000 per annum) savers can now invest alongside our existing high net worth clients and help bring independent films to the big screen.”
