About Puma VCT 13

Puma VCT 13 is managed by Puma Investments, which has tended to specialise in limited-life VCTs. As the name suggests, this is the thirteenth Puma VCT.

At launch, it aimed to invest in companies with assets – such as freehold property, or contracted revenue streams – as well as growth businesses with strong management teams.

Example of a portfolio company held by previous Puma VCTs

Puma 13 VCT - Brewhouse and KitchenBrewhouse & Kitchen

In December 2012 Puma Investments made a £3.1 million investment into a micro-brewery pub business to support the roll-out of the brand across the UK. The Brewhouse & Kitchen (B&K) branded pubs brew a significant volume of their own beer on site and have a quality food offering. The Puma VCTs exited in October 2015. 

Risks: important

This, like all investments available through Wealth Club, is only for experienced investors happy to make their own investment decisions without advice. Tax rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances.

VCTs are high risk so should only form part of a balanced portfolio and you should not invest money you cannot afford to lose. They also tend to be illiquid and hard to sell and value. Before you invest, please carefully read the Risks and Commitments and the offer documents to ensure you fully understand the risks. 

The risks and investment objectives are different with each VCT, but with a significant proportion of the combined portfolios invested in property-owning businesses, investors are likely to be exposed to commercial property.

How to invest

Puma VCT 13 is not currently open to new subscriptions, but intends to launch an offer for subscription in 2020/21.
