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 If this approval is withdrawn, the Ventus Funds will lose this status and all tax reliefs are likely to be removed.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.
