About the Offers
These are Offers by two established generalist VCTs with large, highly diversified portfolios and a history of generating positive shareholder returns and regular dividends. Subscription through these new share Offers provides access to existing portfolios of private equity and AIM investments that have been selected for their potential to achieve capital appreciation and generate profitable realisations for VCT shareholders.
The funds raised will allow the VCTs to make further new and follow-on investments in ambitious, fast growing companies, at a time when Maven’s nationwide team is generating a strong pipeline of new transactions across its regional office network. Maven invests across a broad range of sectors, targeting businesses that have strong core characteristics including a business model capable of scalable growth and a highly capable management team with a proven track record in previous businesses.
Maven is one of the best resourced and most active managers in the sector, with a long-standing track record of success and a regional office network offering nationwide coverage of the market for sourcing VCT qualifying investments.
The Maven VCTs target investment in young and dynamic growth businesses that often benefit from contracted recurring revenues and may be less directly affected by the recent economic volatility, including businesses active in defensive sectors such as software, cyber security, training, healthcare and data analytics, which are often not consumer focused and have been less affected by the global COVID-19 outbreak than other sectors. The Maven VCT portfolios also have relatively low direct exposure to the retail, leisure, hospitality and entertainment sectors, which have been most immediately impacted.
