The Adviser Hour returns with a VCT special on Thursday 2nd February at 10am. After a record-breaking 21/22 VCT season which saw investment break through the £1Bn mark for the first time, what can we expect this tax year? Whilst there’s economic headwinds out there most VCT managers have or are currently raising again this season, with some targeting higher amounts than last year. Despite the headwinds there’s scope for the 2022/23 season to be the second highest on record. The VCT landscape has changed in other ways, with the most popular VCTs filling up in days and VCT managers launching their prospectus but delaying the application process. How can advisers ensure that their clients get in their preferred VCTs? Will the forthcoming changes to taxes make VCTs even more popular? To find out don’t miss it and tune in!
Topics for the Q1 Episode will include:
- Predictions for the rest of the year?
- Impact of additional taxes from next year onwards?
- Making the right investments in the current market?
