What does Amio Wealth do?
Amio Wealth was founded in order to enable people to invest in a more sustainable and ethical way, creating positive environmental and social change without compromising on returns, while providing capital to companies who are looking to grow.
We are what is known as a financial intermediation firm. We bridge the gap between green companies and renewable energy projects seeking funding and investors seeking higher rates of return – with our investments financing a variety of projects across the UK and Europe.
We only work with companies we truly believe in, those that adhere to our strict ethical criteria and those that share our passion for a more sustainable future.
What is an appointed representative?
An appointed representative (“AR”) is a person or firm that is able to perform regulated activities by being authorised under the umbrella of a firm that is directly authorised by the FCA (the “principal”). In Amio Wealth’s circumstance, we are permitted to carry out ‘deal arranging’ due to our principle, Consero Capital’s dealing arranging licence, authorised by the FCA. This means that we are able to represent our investment partners and arrange investments on their behalf, as well as assisting them in their back-office operations.
Are you permitted to give investment advice?
Amio Wealth is not permitted to give investment advice. Rather we believe in giving our clients the requisite information so they can make an informed decision that suits their investing needs. We pride ourselves on our personal approach, meaning that you will be assigned a dedicated relationship manager who is always on hand to answe any questions you may have or provide you with further information.
Are your investments guaranteed?
None of the investments offered by Amio Wealth are guaranteed. The circumstances in which an investment is guaranteed are extremely limited and we would recommend caution with those claiming that this is the case. Despite not being guaranteed we do have security measures in place to mitigate risks to greatest extent possible.
Are your investments covered by the FSCS?

Why investors choose bonds from Amio?
Our bonds are a popular investment choice as they provide investors’ portfolios with security and reliability – offering fixed and predictable returns. The levels of security are not standardised and can vary from bond to bond, but we ensure that our bonds always have comprehensive security measures put in place for our investors, including asset-backing, first legal charge and independent security trustees.
Moreover our bonds enable people to invest in more sustainable way, creating positive environmental and social change and delivering significant rates of return. Our bonds are direct investments in green companies, so you know exactly where your money is going and what is it being used to finance.
What type of security do your bonds offer?
Our investments are secured against the assets and future acquisitions of the company (‘asset-backed’) and bondholders have a ‘first legal charge’ over these assets, meaning that your interests take priority over other stakeholders. Moreover, for each of our bonds we employ an independent security trustee with the power to act in the interests of investors should a company not meet its commitments. It is important to understand that these measures should not be taken as guarantee of repayment. We believe the greatest security for investors is provided by the fact that our opportunities have been carefully selected by us, have undergone a thorough due-diligence process, and are companies operating in the high-growth green energy sector.
You can read more about the security measures put in place to mitigate risk on our website.
Do your bonds have the option of early redemption?
Your investment is what’s known as a ‘non-readily realisable security’, in other words, it cannot be sold on a secondary market or redeemed early, so you need to be willing and able to hold the investment for the entirety of its term.
Are they transferable?
The transfer terms vary for each of the bonds we offer. Please refer to the offering document for the individual investment to find specific information. It is however usually the case that the bonds we offer are not transferable.
Is there a secondary market for Amio Wealth bonds?
The bonds we offer are known as “non-readily realisable securities” and are not tradeable on any secondary market or exchange.
