Its registered office and its principal place of business is at 1 Marylebone High Street, London W1U 4LZ (telephone number 020 7317 1300).
The Company’s principal object is to carry on the business of a venture capital trust company.
The Company does not have any subsidiaries.
The principal legislation under which Edge Performance VCT operates is the Companies Act and the regulations made thereunder. Save for its compliance with the Companies Act (and the regulations from time to time made thereunder), the Listing Rules, the Disclosure and Transparency Rules, the Prospectus Rules and VCT Rules, the Company is not an authorised regulated entity.
Edge Performance VCT’s company secretary, The City Partnership (UK) Limited, acts as custodian of the Company’s unquoted investments. The City Partnership (UK) Limited is registered under the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 and is listed on the FCA register with number 593293.
At present the board of directors of Edge Performance VCT (the “Board” or “Directors”), constitutes Terry Back as non-executive director and Chairman, Aubrey Brocklebank as non-executive director, Howard Flight as non-executive director and Robin Miller as non-executive director.
Directors are provided with key information on the Company’s activities including regulatory and statutory requirements and internal controls by the Company’s solicitors, the Company’s VCT status adviser, the company secretary and the Investment Manager. The Board has direct access to corporate governance advice and compliance services through the company secretary, who is responsible for ensuring that board procedures are followed and compliance requirements are met.
The Board is responsible to shareholders for the proper management of the Company and aims to meet at least quarterly. It has formally adopted a schedule of matters which must be brought to it for decision, thus ensuring that it maintains full and effective control over appropriate strategic, financial, operational and compliance issues. The Chairman, together with the company secretary, establishes the agenda for each board meeting and all necessary papers are distributed in advance of the meetings. The Board considers all matters not included within the remits of the board committees.
All of the Directors are equally responsible for the proper conduct of the Company’s affairs.

The Board has established an ongoing process for the identification, evaluation and management of the significant risks faced by the Company. The Board acknowledges that it is responsible for the Company’s internal control systems and for reviewing their effectiveness. Internal controls are designed to manage the particular needs of the Company and the risks to which it is exposed. The internal control systems aim to ensure the maintenance of proper accounting records, the reliability of the financial information on which business decisions are made and which is used for publication, and that the assets of the Company are safeguarded. They can by their nature provide only reasonable and not absolute assurance against material misstatement or loss. The financial controls operated by the Board include regular reviews of both the financial results and investment performance.
The Board has delegated to third parties the provision of: investment management services; legal and VCT status advisory services; day-to-day accounting, company secretarial and administration services; and share registration services.
Each of these contracts was entered into after full and proper consideration by the Board of the quality and cost of services offered. The Board receives and considers regular reports from the investment manager.
Ad hoc reports and information are supplied to the Board as required. The Board keeps under review the terms of the agreement with the investment manager.
The process adopted by the Board for identifying, evaluating and managing the risks faced by Edge Performance VCT includes an annual review of the control systems. The review covers a consideration of the significant risks in each of five areas: statutory and regulatory compliance, financial reporting, investment strategy, investment performance and reputation.
Each risk is considered with regard to; the likelihood of occurrence, the probable impact on Edge Performance VCT and the controls exercised at source, through reporting and at Board level.
