Past performance is not a guide to the future and you should be aware that share values and income from them may go down as well as up and that you may not get back the amount you originally invested. Potential investors are strongly urged to seek independent professional advice before considering investment in a VCT. Investments made in smaller companies or specialist sectors such as technology related stocks can be more volatile than investments in developed markets and more established companies and above average price movements can be expected. Exposure to a single country market also increases potential volatility. Investments should be viewed as for the medium to long term. Existing tax levels, bases and reliefs may change and the value of reliefs depends on personal circumstances. Investments made by VCTs will normally be in companies whose securities are not publicly traded or fully marketable and may therefore be difficult to realise, as may the shares in the VCT. In the event of a VCT losing its HM Revenue & Customs approval, it is likely that its shares will become illiquid. Government Stamp Duty of 0.5% is payable on all investment trust shares purchased. The value of investment trust shares purchased will immediately be reduced by the difference between buying and selling prices (market maker’s spread). Performance figures do not include market maker’s spread which can be substantial in these trusts. NVM Private Equity Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
