About Redwood Capital

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Independent Analysis

Provided by Tax Efficient Review

The relationship between the Redwood VCT team of Michael Johnson and William Howard began with Redwood at the end of 2016, and it made sense from the point of view of the Redwood board and shareholders as the Redwood VCT was too small to compete for new deals and was hampered by being unable to raise significant levels of new cash from investors. 

With the additional resources of the well-regarded Redwood team, they have been able to raise new money and participate in a range of new investments, the same as investors would have had within the Redwood EIS but with a much higher level of diversification.

The initial concerns about this relationship (whether this was simply a re-badged VCT trading under a different name but continuing the same investment strategy) have been assuaged. There has been a marked change in the investment strategy of this VCT following the tie-up with Redwood and this is the change that was needed to revitalise this VCT.

The full formalisation of the relationship between Redwood and Redwood VCT is expected to be completed in 2020. In our view, for VCT investors who seek diversification and a yielding investment this is a very interesting addition alongside the existing, growth-oriented Redwood EIS, and a VCT that is differentiated versus other VCTs through the dealflow already proven by the successful Redwood EIS funds. Accordingly we have increased our score.

Tax Efficient Review rating: 86 out of 100 (for a Generalist VCT with track record)
