Is investing in businesses a good idea?

We like to think so! While investing in early-stage and growth-focused businesses does carry significant risks, it also allows investors to invest in businesses they believe in, support their growth and (hopefully) generate returns over time.

However, you should pay careful attention to our Risk Warning as most early-stage and growth-focused businesses are more likely to fail than succeed. We recommend keeping a well-diversified portfolio of investments, and investing no more than 10% of your total investable capital in early-stage and growth-focused businesses (depending on your investor profile and risk appetite), with the remainder of your funds split across slightly more liquid and less risky assets.
