Diversification involves spreading your money across different types of investments with different risks to reduce your overall risk. However, it will not lessen all types of risk. Diversification is an essential part of investing. Investors should only invest a proportion of their available investment funds in early stage companies (usually not more than 10%) and should balance this with safer, more liquid investments.
Dividends / return potential
Investing in shares does not involve a regular return on your investment. You are unlikely to see a return on your investment until you are able to sell your shares. Profits are typically re-invested into the business to fuel growth and build shareholder value. Businesses have no obligation to pay shareholder dividends.
Loss of investment or tax relief
The majority of start-up businesses fail or do not scale up as planned and therefore investing in these businesses may involve significant risk. It is likely that you may lose all, or part, of your investment. You should only invest an amount that you are willing to lose and should build a diversified portfolio to spread risk and increase the chance of an overall return on your investment capital.
Tax relief may not be available or may be lost due to your personal circumstances or due to the activities of the company. You should consider this carefully before investing.
Lack of liquidity
Shares of early stage businesses cannot be sold easily and they are unlikely to be imminently listed on a secondary or primary trading market. It is advisable not to invest in an illiquid share if there is a reasonable likelihood that you will require access to the funds at short notice.
Any investment in the company shares may be subject to dilution in the future. Dilution occurs when a company issues more shares. Dilution affects every existing shareholder who does not buy any of the new shares being issued. As a result, an existing shareholder’s proportionate shareholding of the company is reduced, or ‘diluted’. This has an effect on a number of things, including voting, dividends and value.
