Generalist VCTs

Compare Generalist VCTs

Generalist Venture Capital Trusts are VCTs which invest in primarily unquoted companies in a wide variety of sectors and stages of development, which helps to diversify your investment portfolio and spread the higher risk associated with VCTs.

 

Unlike AIM VCTs, Generalist VCTs are not as interested in Alternative Investment Market companies, although they will invest in a broad range of companies to spread the risk. They raise money through investors for company growth and management buyouts, often for companies that are already, or are nearly, profitable, in order to further reduce the risk, but they will sometimes invest in start-ups.

 

Generalist VCTs are most suitable for long-term investors. See the table below for more information and to find out how to apply for the latest Generalist VCTs available:
