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.
