Puma VCT 13

A top-up into an existing limited life VCT managed by an experienced team with a focus on capital preservation.

Puma Investments have launched a £5 million fund raise into their existing limited life Venture Capital Trust, Puma VCT 13. This is the thirteenth VCT structure launched by what is now a very experienced team. A limited life VCT is deemed to be at the lower end of the VCT risk spectrum: more conservative in nature than a generalist VCT due to the requirement to return capital following the compulsory five year holding period under HMRC regulations. The investment strategy underlying this VCT centres on capital preservation and robust downside protection by focusing primarily on asset-backed investments.

About the manager

Puma Investments was formed in 2011, rebranding the investment management of the tax efficient investments managed at Shore Capital Group. Puma Investments is a partially owned subsidiary of Shore Capital Limited, which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shore Capital Group, an AIM listed company which specialises in principal finance and equity capital market activities in addition to asset management.
