The venture capital trust (VCT) manager Albion Capital has launched a fundraise of up to £60m through top up offers across five of its six VCTs.
Following a fundraise of £80m last year, the new offer seeks to raise £14.5m for the Albion Development VCT, £15.75m for the Albion Enterprise VCT, £11.75m for the Albion Technology & General VCT, £7.5m for the Crown Place VCT and £10.5m for the Kings Arm Yard VCT.
Will Fraser-Allen, managing partner at Albion Capital, said the fundraise will be used to invest in new UK opportunities, while also driving growth from companies within the existing Albion portfolio.

“Having invested in 45 companies and generated £140m from exits over the past three years, Albion’s latest fundraise demonstrates our ongoing commitment to backing British entrepreneurs,” he said.
He added: “We see plenty of investment opportunities in new growth areas that can flourish despite a high interest rate environment, such as data and artificial intelligence. We aim to continue providing a patient source of capital to UK companies who are leading this growth.”
Minimum investment for each of the VCTs is £5,000, with an initial charge of 3%.
