Northern VCTs – 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. Previous top-up offers have sold out quickly; 2017-18’s £60 million fundraise is the first substantial share offer for a while. As with other VCTs that previously invested in management buyouts, the 2015 rule changes have necessitated a change in emphasis.
How have the Northern VCTs adapted their investment approach? What pedigree does NVM have for earlier-stage growth capital investing? 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.
