Venture Capital Trusts

Anybody had an experience of investing in VCT?

Any views, comments?

Does the present economic climate - with small companies particularly vulnerable - increase the risk for these investments more than for others (e.g. share ISAs) ?

A lot of people get carried away with the tax advantages of VCTs without giving as much thought to the underlying investments.

In my opinion they are best left for HNW individuals as a method of diversification where they already are invested across other major asset classes ( Equities, Property, Fixed Interest & Cash )

There can be liquidity issues with certain stocks so be careful.
