This material is provided for informational purposes and is directed only at persons in the UK. It is not to be regarded as an offer or invitation to buy or sell an investment nor does it solicit any such offer or invitation. All information, views, prices or projections are subject to change without notice. Persons resident in territories other than the UK should consult their professional advisers as to whether they require any governmental or other consent or need to observe any formalities to enable them to invest in the products described in these pages.
An investment into any of our products may only be made on the basis of the information set out in the respective prospectus or product brochure. It is not intended that anything stated in this website should be construed as an offer, an invitation to treat or an inducement for you to engage in any investment activity.
The Company is not able to provide advice on investors' suitability for an investment in any of our products. Opinions expressed on this website represent the views of the Company at the time of publication. These are subject to change, and should not be interpreted as investment advice.
It is the responsibility of investors to satisfy themselves that any investments made from the information in this web site are suitable for them and applications may be made only on the basis of, and using the appropriate application forms.
If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of these products for you, you should seek independent financial advice.
When investing in financial products, there are various risk factors to consider, which will vary based upon the nature of the product and the investors circumstances. Generic risk factors to consider include, but are not limited to, the following:
Past performance is no guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and income from them may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
Tax assumptions are subject to statutory change and the value of tax reliefs will depend on your individual circumstances.
Exchange rate changes may cause the value of overseas investments to rise or fall.
Investing in smaller companies can carry greater risks than those usually associated with large capitalisation companies.
Venture Capital Trusts
In relation to VCTs, the following generic information is provided. This should not be considered as a comprehensive explanation of the characteristics of and requirements associated with all VCTs and circumstances.
Investors must retain their VCT shares for five years to retain the up-front income tax relief. Please remember that the tax rules and regulations governing VCTs are subject to change. The tax reliefs available to certain investors in VCTs are dependent on individual circumstances as well as the VCT maintaining HM Revenue & Customs approval. If this approval is withdrawn, a VCT will lose its status and all tax reliefs are likely to be cancelled.
The share price of a VCT may not reflect its net asset value. There is only a limited secondary market for shares in VCTs which may render such shares difficult to sell as they may not be readily marketable. VCTs invest in unquoted and AIM-quoted companies which are therefore smaller and carry a higher level of risk than shares which are listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. The shares of VCT investee companies may not be readily marketable. Before making an investment, ensure that you have read and understood the risk warnings set out in the VCT prospectus. An investment in a VCT should be regarded as a long-term investment.

Conflicts of interest may arise through the relationships the COmpany has with other parties. The Company has a conflicts of interest policy designed to enable it to avoid, manage, mitigate and/or disclose (as appropriate) such conflicts, when they are identified.
