Our broad and diversified portfolio – including a range of technology, pharma and hospitality businesses – is consistently reviewed and refined, as we seek to find the next success story to support along their journey.

The Baronsmead VCTs also have the advantage of access to the experience of the Gresham House network. This enables our investee businesses to benefit both financially and practically throughout their development.

Important information

Prospective investors should carefully consider the risks associated with this form of investment and seek advice from a qualified financial adviser. Investment in smaller unquoted companies involves a higher degree of risk than investment in larger companies. VCT shares are infrequently traded, so shares are often valued at a discount to their Net Asset Value and may be difficult to realise. Shareholders may be offered a price which is less than the full value of the underlying assets.
