Investing into VCTs
If like many private investors you are looking to supplement your investment portfolio with a solution that could offer higher returns, then Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs) may be for you.
Freedom and flexibility
The reduction of the lifetime allowance from £1,250,000 to £1,000,000 in 2016 might have made traditional pensions less attractive for high earners, but with more flexible pension withdrawals now available, it does mean that there can be greater freedom for retirement planning. This freedom is increasingly being channelled towards VCT funds which have become a highly attractive alternative for a relatively new generation of investors.
As an investor into a VCT the tax relief is incredibly attractive and is the government’s way of encouraging people to support often higher risk smaller businesses.
