Question by Bernadette
Can a private investor invest in Venture Capital Funds? Are their fees high?
Answered by Joshua Gerstler
Yes, private investors can invest in Venture Capital Funds.
Fees for VCTs do tend to be higher than for more traditional investments.
Annual Management Charges tend to range between 1.75% and 3% per annum.
In addition, there are often Initial Charges of as much as 5%.
Often you can get a discount on the fees if your Financial Adviser sets the investment up for you.
There are also lots of other pros and cons of VCTs and they tend to be for "sophisticated" investors.
I hope that helps!
