Enquiries: shareholdings and documents

For Shareholding enquiries you can contact the Registrar, Capita Asset Services, on, or via the Capita Share Portal service which enables you to easily access and maintain your shareholding online, including changes of address. All instructions to amend the share register should be given via the Share Portal or in writing to Capita Assets Services, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, BR3 4TU.

Capita also operates a dedicated non-premium rate VCT shareholder helpline on behalf of the Maven VCTs, on 0333 300 1566. Lines are open 0900 to 1730,  Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays in England and Wales). Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls from outside the UK will be charged at the applicable international rate. Please note that the helpline cannot provide any financial, legal, investment or tax advice.‎ 

Annual and Interim Reports

Annual and Interim Reports, and other shareholder documents, are available for download on this page. Maven and the VCTs are committed to reducing the number of shareholder documents sent by post, both to minimise costs for VCT shareholders and to reduce the environmental impact of printing substantial documents. If you currently receive hard copy documents and would rather receive notifications by post , or would like to switch from postal to email notifications, you should advise Capita using the details above.

Unsolicited offers for shares (Boiler Room scams)

Some shareholders have received unsolicited calls from organisations offering to buy their VCT shares at prices much higher than current market values, or to sell non-tradable, overpriced, high risk or even non-existent securities. Whilst the callers may sound credible, shareholders should be aware that their intentions are often fraudulent. If you receive such a call, you should exercise caution and take note of the advice available from the ACTION FRAUD and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) websites.

Recommendation of non-mainstream investment products

The Company currently conducts its affairs so that the shares issued by it can be recommended by independent financial advisers to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA’s rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Company’s shares are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares in a venture capital trust and the returns to investors are predominantly based on investments in private companies or publicly quoted securities.
