How to invest?
Investors can subscribe for new shares by:
Each Company is a Venture Capital Trust (VCT). The VCT regime was established by the UK Government with the intention of encouraging individuals to invest indirectly in a range of small higher-risk trading companies whose shares and securities are not listed on a recognised stock exchange. Investments in VCTs are high risk and for the long term. Your capital is at risk.
