With over £300 million in assets under management, Octopus Titan VCT is the largest Venture Capital Trust (VCT) in the UK*. It targets high levels of capital growth, with a strong track record of converting investment performance into tax-free dividends for investors.
Because of its size and track record, it’s able to attract some of the best entrepreneurs and management teams who are looking to build their businesses. This is reflected in the successful exits the VCT has seen in recent months. In 2016 alone, Octopus Titan VCT has had three significant realisations from portfolio company sales including SwiftKey to Microsoft, Vision Direct to Essilor and Magic Pony Technology to Twitter. More importantly for investors, these exits enabled Octopus to pay out a 7p dividend in April in addition to the recently announced interim dividend of 2p, which will be paid on 2 September 2016.
