Earlier this month, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a rise in taxes on dividends by 1.25%. How would that affect investing? According to experts, it’s likely to increase demand for venture capital trusts (VCTs) due to their tax exemption benefits.  For an annual allowance of up to £200,000, VCTs can offer you 30% income tax relief. VCT returns, often paid as dividends, are also tax-free. That’s why experts believe they’d present a way for you to reduce taxes, especially if you’re a high earner.  Founder of Wealth Club, Alex Davies, comments that VCTs are one of the few remaining options for tax-efficient investing after you’ve put as much as you can in ISAs and pensions. Nick Bird from Octopus Investments shares Davies’ view. He mentioned that VCTs often target a 5% tax-free dividend.

Diversify your portfolio with ETFs and index funds

MoneyController on 21.09.2021

Investing involves a certain amount of risk. That’s why one of the first things you might consider is how to reduce your risk or keep it at your desired level. Here’s where diversification could come into play. Diversification is holding an investment in different asset classes and different assets within the same class.  Often, you’d assess companies and sectors to select the ones that suit you. An easier way is to invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or index funds. cAccording to Chris Berkel from AXIS Financial, investing in a fund that tracks an index is most often the only way to invest in it.  ETFs ETFs are investment vehicles traded like stocks but, instead of representing a single company, they represent a pool of securities. It could include stocks, bonds, options, commodities, or a combination.
