Supporting the next generation of British businesses
Investing in a venture capital trust (VCT) means you are helping innovative smaller companies to create jobs, prosperity and economic growth. And, they offer a number of tax reliefs, too.
With more than £750 million invested on behalf of 26,000 investors, we’re the UK’s largest VCT manager*. We launched our first VCT in 2002 and today we offer a range of VCTs to suit different investor objectives.

Some risks to keep in mind
VCTs are not suitable for everyone, which is why we always recommend talking to a qualified financial adviser before deciding to invest. You can find a local financial adviser here. Please bear in mind that the tax incentives exist because of the greater risks involved with investing in smaller companies, which mean you could get back less than your original investment. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future, and tax reliefs depend on the VCT maintaining its qualifying status.
Please make sure you read the ‘Explaining the risks’ section below, and for full details of fees, charges and risks, look at the product brochure on the relevant product pages that we link to below.
