Want to know what a Venture Capital Trust (VCT) offers? Wondering how EIS and SEIS work? Interested in ways to beat Inheritance Tax? Our free guides explain briefly and in plain English the benefits and risks of investment opportunities for high net worth individuals and sophisticated investors. 

A word of caution: the investments described are not for the fainthearted. They invest in small companies, which are by nature riskier than larger ones.

The trade-off is that you could keep more of your wealth out of the taxman’s hands. 

Our free guides are not advice, nor a personal recommendation to invest, but they explain the main facts you need to know, so you can decide if these opportunities are for you. Please note, tax benefits depend on circumstances and tax rules can change.
