Northern VCTs – Jan 2020 manager interview

Tim Levett, Chairman of NVM Private Equity, talks to Wealth Club about the Northern VCTs

These three VCTs, the first of which was among the earliest venture capital trusts (launched 1995), have an extremely loyal investor base. In December 2019 they announced a change to the management arrangement, with Mercia Asset Management acquiring NVM’s VCT team. The latest share offer seeks to raise £40 million across the 3 VCTs. 

What will change, and what will stay the same under the new arrangement? What makes up the portfolio currently, and what kind of companies are the new investments being made into? Can the VCTs continue to provide consistent returns? And is this a good time to become a new shareholder? Alex Davies, founder and chief executive of Wealth Club, interviews Tim Levett to find out.
