Risks involved:

Illiquidity and loss of capital
Trading in Venture Capital Trust (VCT) shares is not particularly active and consequently the price that you may be offered when you wish to sell your shares may be less than the price at which you bought the shares. Shares typically trade at a discount to their net asset value.

An investment in a VCT should be regarded as a long term investment.

Tax and VCTs
The information contained on this website in relation to the tax benefits from investing in VCTs is based on existing legislation. Changes in the tax rules or changes in the legislation concerning VCTs and, specifically, qualifying holdings and qualifying trades, may limit future investment opportunities by the Ventus Funds and have an impact on future asset values and level of sustainable dividend.

The tax reliefs available to certain investors depend on the Ventus Funds maintaining HM Revenue & Customs approval. If this approval is withdrawn, the Ventus Funds will lose this status and all tax reliefs are likely to be removed.

Investors must retain their VCT shares for five years to retain the up-front income tax relief.

Past performance and projected dividend yields
Past performance of the VCT shares is no indication of future performance. The net asset value of the Ventus Funds is dependent on the performance of the underlying operational companies in the portfolio. Whilst the Boards have each stated objectives to "to achieve a sustainable level of dividends and to protect and enhance the company’s capital", there can be no guarantee that these objectives will be achieved.

The Ventus Funds

The Ventus Funds, Ventus VCT plc and Ventus 2 VCT plc, were launched in 2005 and 2006 respectively. They are Venture Capital Trusts, managed by Temporis Capital, with full listings on the London Stock Exchange.

The Ventus Funds have raised and invested over £50 million in companies which have developed and constructed renewable energy projects in the UK: wind, hydro-electric and land-fill gas. Their investment portfolios are now comprised of companies all of which own projects that are operational and generating electricity and revenue.


The Ventus Funds are independent companies. However, having made many mutual investments, they have set out a common strategy:

  • To achieve a sustainable level of dividends from the management of a portfolio of renewable energy assets held within a tax efficient Venture Capital Trust.
  • To protect the capital of shareholders and to enhance its value by the active management of the assets operated by investee companies, which are generally joint venture companies.
  • To manage the assets with a view to maximising their longevity and optionality.
