Key risks

Throughout this difficult period, it's important to remember the key risks of our investment products. The value of an investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

The share price of VCTs, as well as smaller and unquoted companies, may fall as well as rise more than companies listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell.
