Some risks to keep in mind
It’s important to remember that investing in VCTs is considered high risk and places your capital at risk. VCTs are not suitable for everyone and you should fully understand the risks involved. We do not offer investment or tax advice, and we recommend you talk to a financial adviser before making investment decisions.
VCT shares could fall or rise more than shares listed on the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell. You should also be aware that tax treatment depends on your personal circumstances and may change in the future. Tax reliefs depend on the VCT maintaining its qualifying status.
