Investment process

The trust invests mainly in unquoted venture capital situations, aiming for high long term returns to shareholders through a combination of dividend yield and capital growth. NVM’s venture capital funds provide long-term equity finance for private companies in the UK. The manager will consider investments between £1m to £10m. Where larger amounts are required, this is sometimes arranged by syndicating with other venture capital firms.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
