One Team Logic
The value of a VCT investment can fall as well as rise. You may not get back the full amount you invest. The share prices of smaller companies may rise or fall more than the shares of companies listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

Risks to bear in mind
Capital at risk
The value of a VCT investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the full amount they invest.
Tax treatment may change
Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future. Tax reliefs depend on the VCT maintaining its qualifying status.
Five-year minimum holding period
Investors need to hold shares for a minimum of five years. If you decide to sell your shares before then, you will be required to repay to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) any upfront income tax relief you’ve claimed.
VCTs are a high-risk investment
VCTs invest in smaller companies that are often not listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. Investments in smaller companies can fall or rise in value much more sharply than shares in larger, more established companies. They can also be harder to sell.
