Investing in Growth-Stage Companies

The Blackfinch Spring VCT invests in new firms at the growth stage of development. This brings a higher chance of success, alongside Venture Capital Trust (VCT) tax benefits. We invest in firms that have already raised funding, gained traction and aim to accelerate the scale-up process.

Technology-Enabled Firms

We’re focused on companies using the Internet, mobile devices and social media to offer their customers better products and services. With these businesses operating across industries, exposure to different firms and sectors also helps create portfolio diversification.

High-Growth Potential

We target firms offering the potential for higher returns at exit. They need to show they have revenue and customers, and are capable of disrupting large, growing markets. We invest in firms with strong teams who have complementary skills and are ready for the next phase of growth.

VCT Tax Benefits

Clients can draw on VCT tax benefits through investing in growth-stage technology-enabled firms. Benefits include:

  • Up to 30% Income Tax relief (minimum holding period five years)
  • Gains exempt from Capital Gains Tax (CGT) when investors sell their shares
  • No Income Tax on any dividends from a VCT
