Featured offers

We look at what is available currently in VCTs, EIS and SEIS investments, IHT portfolios and AIM ISAs – and then we narrow it down. If we were to pick just three or four investments of that type today, which would they be? These are the offers you will see below. We do this to help experienced investors make their own considered investment decisions. It is not a personal recommendation to invest. Please remember all the investments on our website are high risk and illiquid: you could lose all the money you invest. Find out more about how we choose and see more on the risks.
