The bond offer
Animal Trust is seeking to raise £2 million to support the fit-out of two recently acquired surgeries, as well as support with the rollout of further new sites. The company also has plans to grow its online veterinary service and invest in a net zero pet crematorium.
In line with its core mission, Animal Trust seeks to open sites in areas where the available veterinary services are too expensive for local residents. This means they target locations that are either within, or accessible to, lower earning individuals and families.
Animal Trust bonds are eligible to be held in a Triodos Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA). The IFISA is a type of ISA that allows you to hold crowdfunded debt securities such as this bond. As with all ISAs, there are eligibility criteria and you receive interest tax-free. ISA eligibility does not guarantee returns or protect consumers from losing their money.
To invest in Animal Trust bonds through a Triodos IFISA, select the ‘Invest through IFISA’ option. This selection will add to your current year IFISA or will open a new IFISA if you haven’t previously opened one.
Transferring an existing ISA
If you want to invest by transferring an existing ISA to a Triodos IFISA you must first request the transfer. You can do this under ‘Account’ once you’ve become a registered user of the platform. Your ISA transfer must be completed first, before you make an application for bonds.
