What will the event cover

The content is based upon our findings from surveying advisers for the annual Alternative Investment Market Industry Report. Each presenter is asked to cover the same five issues that we know are key concerns for advisers:

THE FUND MANAGER: ownership, length of time in the market, relevant AUM, performance track record and financial strength

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE: growth, capital preservation, income, or a combination of the three, and the targeted level of annual returns

UNDERLYING INVESTMENTS: What are they, how will they generate returns and how is liquidity achieved?

CHARGES BORNE: charges both the investor and the investees face during the product’s lifetime, incl. performance, admin, and deal fees

DIFFERENTIATION: what differentiates the product from others in the market


What advisers have said about our previous Showcase events

How is it different from

…reading the VCT Report?

While our industry reports give a comprehensive overview of the market, this event will focus in on specific Fund Managers and their offers. We won’t spend long discussing generalities and basic information or the history and development of the market. The intention is to hear about some of the leading investment solutions without repetition or deviations into irrelevant side issues.

Our VCT Showcases are supported by investment experts from


Albion Ventures

Albion Capital LLP was created in January 2009, when it acquired the business of Close Ventures Limited from Close Brothers Group plc and is structured as a partnership formed by the former Close Ventures management team. We think it is appropriate that a business investing in owner-managed companies is itself owner-managed.

We look to invest £1-10 million in a wide range of growing businesses, from technology orientated companies to service and asset-based businesses.

We enjoy working with smaller companies and entrepreneurial management teams, seeing our purpose as helping businesses to grow by providing financial resources as well as strategic advice. Our ultimate aim is to realise the full potential of the business invested in and so create returns for the shareholders in our funds. We act with integrity and respect for the people we deal with.
