Fuel Ventures VCT

Fuel Ventures VCT

Risk warning: The underlying investments in unquoted companies can be volatile and have a high risk of failure.  In addition, the VCT’s own shares can be difficult to sell even though they are listed on the stock market.  This is a long-term investment and you should be prepared to hold your shares for a minimum of five years.  Tax benefits depend on personal circumstances and are subject to change.  There is no guarantee that a VCT will maintain its qualifying status.

Titan Alternatives has partnered with Fuel Ventures

Titan Alternatives has partnered with Fuel Ventures, to help originate and officially promote a new VCT.

Risk warning

Titan Alternatives Limited (FRN: 974252) is acting as promoter of the Offer and is an Appointed Representative of Sturgeon Ventures LLP (FRN:452811), which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Any decision to invest in the Offer should only be made based on information contained in the prospectus and the Key Information Document (KID). The information provided herein does not constitute advice on investments, legal matters, or taxation. Prospective investors should consult with their own independent financial adviser before making an investment in a Venture Capital Trust (VCT).

Prospective investors should be aware that the Offer is a high-risk investment and they should not invest unless they are prepared to lose the entirety of their investment. In addition, the value of an investment can fluctuate and that they may not get back the full amount they invest. There is no certainty that the market price of the shares will fully reflect the underlying net asset value, that Shareholders will be able to realise their shareholding, or that any dividends will be paid. An investment in a VCT should be viewed as a higher risk, longer-term investment. Investors should be prepared to hold their investment for a minimum of five years in order to benefit from tax relief, with such requirements and benefit subject to future regulatory change.

Fuel Ventures VCT invests in early stage, unquoted companies whose shares can fall or rise in value more than other shares listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. The secondary market for VCT shares is generally illiquid and investors may find it takes longer to realise their investment. Tax reliefs available on VCT investments depend on individual circumstances and may change in the future. Tax reliefs also depend on the VCT obtaining and maintaining its VCT-qualifying status.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance and target values may deviate when different parameters apply.

Investors in the Offer will not be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
