Risk warning Your capital is at risk if you invest in early stage unquoted businesses. Investing in start-ups and early stage businesses involves risks, including illiquidity (the inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. There is no secondary market available meaning that these securities are illiquid. As a result, it is possible you may lose all of your capital. The tax treatment of this business depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change. Past performance and forecasts are not indicative of future performance.

We want our investors to be fully aware of the downsides of investing as well as the potential benefits. It's therefore important to realise that investing always carries risks, including the loss of capital, illiquidity (the inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends and share dilution. Alternative investments should still be made as part of a diversified portfolio. Read our full Risk Warning
