Tax-efficient investing in Venture Capital Trusts (VCT) and Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS)
Any investments in VCT and EIS schemes should be viewed as a high risk and long-term commitment.(i.e. three years for EIS and five years for VCT schemes, but plan for a longer time-frame). Due to the nature of the underlying assets these schemes are highly illiquid. Investors must be aware they may have difficulty or be unable to realize their shares at levels close to that which reflect the value of the underlying assets.
Tax incentives available to investors exist in order to attract investment into an asset class that warrants high risk categorization.
These are complex products and are only suitable for sophisticated investors.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Please ensure you understand the risks involved.
If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment please seek financial advice.

Please be aware of the risks involved. The value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change. If in any doubt, please seek advice.
