Some risks to bear in mind

Capital is at risk

The value of an investment, and income from it can fall as well as rise. You could end up getting back less than you put in.

Volatility and liquidity

VCT shares could fall or rise in value more than other shares listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell.

Personal circumstances

Tax relief depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future.

VCT-qualification status

Tax reliefs depend on the VCT maintaining its qualifying status.
