Unsolicited Offers For Shares
Some shareholders have received unsolicited calls from organisations offering to buy their VCT shares at prices much higher than current market values. Whilst the callers 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 Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) website.

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.
The Company’s shares feature on a full list of excluded securities which can be found on the AIC website.
