An investment in a Venture Capital Trust (“VCT”) carries a higher risk than many other forms of investment. In addition, the value of an investment in a VCT may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested, even after taking into account the tax reliefs. VCTs usually trade at a discount to their net asset value. It may be difficult to exit VCTs and they should be considered as long-term investments. The past performance of the Company is not a reliable indicator of its future performance.
