Why invest?

  • Established VCT with existing portfolio of high quality and performing assets/companies
  • Diverse portfolio of consumer investments, mix of later stage and early stage
  • Dividend target 3p per share per annum
  • Market leading total expense ratio of 2%, with no hidden fees
  • Investment strategy remains unchanged despite the 2015/16 changes to VCT rules
  • Manager is backed by Oakley Capital Group ($1.5bn AUM)
  • Minimum investment £3,000



Please note, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and may not be repeated. The above figures exclude tax relief and are after all fees / charges. They include dividends paid.


The fund is now 4 years old and is performing as well. The Ordinary shares have produced a total return (NAV plus dividends, after all charges) of 124.5p. Starting at 97.9p, the younger B Ordinary shares have already generated a total return of 108.2p (including a 2p dividend paid in October 2016).

However, following the 2015 changes to the VCT rules many of the old guard of VCT managers are having to change their investment strategy and/or are raising non VCT qualifying funds. Pembroke predominantly focuses on providing development capital to growth opportunities, rather than management buy-out transactions or investing in older businesses. It is therefore not materially affected by the VCT rule changes.

Pembroke VCT has raised approximately £48 million since 2013.

Portfolio examples:

The current portfolio is a diverse spread of investments across the consumer sector. Examples of portfolio companies include American burger chain Five Guys, Plenish Cleanse health foods, Blaze lazerlight technology who re-imagined the bike light and Troubadour luxury accessories.

* Please note Kin is unable to give taxation or financial advice and strongly recommends private investors speak with a suitably qualified independent financial adviser. Venture Capital Trusts are long term, higher risk investments and will not be suitable for all investors. The level of tax relief received depends on individual circumstances and may be withdrawn at a later date.
