Important Notice

Investing in our products will place your capital at risk and you may not get back the full amount invested. Any tax treatment may be subject to change and the availability and value of the reliefs depend on the individual circumstances of each investor. The availability of tax reliefs also depends on the investee companies maintaining their qualifying status.

Further information can be found at HMRC’s website. Neither past performance or forecasts are reliable indicators of future results and should not be relied upon. Unquoted or smaller company shares are likely to have higher price fluctuations and are likely to be more difficult to sell than shares quoted on the London Stock Exchange Official List. Website content is not intended to constitute investment, tax or legal advice. We recommend you seek independent advice before investing in any of our products.
