Triple Point’s Jack Rose: How VCTs can help investors capitalise on innovation
“In times of change and turbulence, the companies that prioritise innovation and entrepreneurship will flourish –and the UK start-up industry has duly boomed during the pandemic. In 2020 alone, 93 new ‘unicorns’ were created, while the British high-growth company sector was valued at $585bn (£424bn), doubling in size since 2017.
For investors looking to capitalise on this appetite for innovation, venture capital trusts (VCTs) – traditionally seen as niche but now increasingly mainstream – deserve consideration. They offer key benefits to investors and, if the associated risks are carefully considered, can be the answer to investors seeking to capitalise on the current economic climate and back high-quality, better-capitalised companies with lower valuations.”
Now in its fourth year, Triple Point’s Venture Fund VCT typically invests in pre-Series A business-to-consumer (B2B) technology businesses. This aims to gives a better valuation on entry, which in turn should lead to a better opportunity to deliver returns for shareholders. Find out more
