Important Information

Capital is at risk. The value of an investment, and any income from it can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the full amount they invest. Venture Capital Trusts (“VCTs”) should be considered longer-term investments and may be higher risk and more difficult to realise than an investment in listed securities. Tax reliefs are dependent on the VCT maintaining its qualifying status and on investors’ individual circumstances. Current tax rules are subject to change. If a VCT loses its qualifying status, tax advantages will be withdrawn from that point. VCTs usually trade at a discount to their net asset value.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Foresight Group LLP does not provide investment, legal, tax or other advice and the information on this website should not be construed as such. We recommend investors seek advice from a regulated financial adviser.

Investors should only invest in Foresight VCTs on the basis of information contained in the applicable Documentation (including any Brochure, Fund Prospectus, Offer Documents, Key Information Documents and Disclosure Documentation) or Terms and Conditions of Investment as appropriate.
