Foresight VCT plc is a generalist fund aiming to provide investors with attractive returns from a portfolio of investments in fast growing, unquoted UK companies.
Foresight VCT (formerly Foresight Technology VCT plc) was launched in November 1997, initially raising £11m for investment in technology focused companies. In 1999/2000, a further £32.6 million was raised through a "C" share issue and £5.8 million in a subsequent top up offer. In 2007, the "O" share and "C" share classes were merged and the fund was renamed Foresight VCT plc.
At the date of the merger, the fund was the best performing VCT ever launched having achieved a number of exceptional realisations and having paid tax free dividends of £1.65 per £1 share.
In March 2011 Keydata Income VCT 1 Plc and Keydata Income VCT 2 Plc were merged into Foresight VCT Plc by means of a share exchange.
The fund remains the best performing VCT ever launched*.
In line with Foresight's investment strategy, this fund invests in later stage growth capital opportunities across a range of sectors.
