Looking for a good return and a positive impact?
Our bonds offer investors fixed returns, providing their portfolios with reliability, but they also affect positive change in our communities and the environment. We have a number of investment options to suit you and your requirements – including a variety of green and ethical projects and varying investment rates and terms.
How do our bonds work?
Bonds are one of the ways that companies can raise finance. You, the investor, loan your money to a company, in this case one that fulfils our socially responsible and green criteria. That company, the bond issuer, in turn pay you, the bondholder, a fixed rate of interest for lending them that money over an agreed term and on maturity repay the capital you invested, otherwise known as your principle.
Investments that suit you
We have a number of different sustainable investment opportunities, ranging from developing solar farms to waste-to-energy sites to eco-property developments. All of which have varying terms and rates to suit your needs: fixed rates of interest paying between 8% and 12%, options to take regular income or to compound the interest until maturity and varying lengths of investment terms – we also do not charge administrative or management fees.
How is my investment protected?
We believe it is possible to create positive environmental and social change without compromising on investment security or returns. We only offer investments that put you first – they are secured against the assets of the company you are invested in and you have first legal charge over these assets. You can read more here about the security we put in place for our investors. However, it is important to understand that these security measures are not a guarantee of repayment and in certain instances a given companies assets may not be realised to return investor’s capital – these investments are not covered by the FSCS.
