Unicorn AIM VCT

 

A new £30m offer from the Unicorn AIM VCT is now open.

Launched in 2001 and with net assets of approximately £162 million, the Unicorn AIM VCT is also currently the largest AIM-focused VCT in the market.

Unicorn is an independently owned and managed fund management business specialising in UK small and mid-cap companies. The last offer from the VCT, which was £15 million in size and opened in January 2017, became fully subscribed within two weeks.

Unicorn manages over £1bn of assets across a range of Funds. Some £300m is specifically invested in AIM-listed companies.

Manager of the Unicorn AIM VCT Chris Hutchinson (above) said: “Unicorn’s AIM-focused VCT has a long established track record of delivering attractive and sustainable tax-free dividend income, while also generating meaningful capital gains for shareholders over the longer term. The majority of our investee companies are in sound operational and financial health and many of them are now dividend paying companies in their own right.

“Importantly, we also continue to see a healthy flow of earlier stage, VCT-qualifying investment opportunities. Despite the somewhat uncertain economic and political outlook, we therefore remain confident that this appealing combination of tax- free dividend income and capital growth can be maintained.”
