Maven Income & Growth VCTs – manager interview

An exclusive interview with Bill Nixon of Maven Capital Partners, which manages six Venture Capital Trusts alongside private equity, debt and property investing.

Two of these VCTs, Maven Income & Growth VCTs 1 and 5, are raising new capital in 2018/19. In the past, Maven has excelled at supporting management buyouts, which have delivered some good exits for VCT investors. However, the 2015 rule changes have disallowed this kind of investment in favour of earlier-stage growth capital deals. Like several other prominent VCT managers, Maven has had to adapt. How are their newer investments doing? What kind of companies are they looking for currently? Does Maven’s regional network give it a competitive advantage in sourcing deals? And what should this year’s investors expect from the two VCTs that are raising funds currently? Alex Davies, founder and chief executive of Wealth Club, interviews Bill Nixon to find out.
