Remember, the value of an investment, and any income derived from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the full amount they invest.

VCT, smaller and unquoted company shares are by their nature high risk, their share price may be volatile and they may be hard to sell. You’ll find our full guide to risks here
