Our upcoming IFISA eligible bond offers include:

·Refinancing an operational community-owned solar farm
An operational community-owned solar farm based in Somerset is seeking to raise capital. It uses its surplus profits to make community benefit payments which go to its charity partner Key4Life’s At Risk programme. This programme helps to reduce re-offending rates amongst young men and find them employment.

This £900,000 13.5-year bond will pay 4.75% interest, rising in line with the retail price index.

·Helping a special needs school increase pupil places by one third
We are working with a charity that runs a school for children with cerebral palsy and motor neurone disorders. Demand for its places is much higher than it can currently meet, so it is moving to new premises that need to be completely refurbished.

This £1.5m unsecured 8-year bond will pay 6% interest.

·Building a rewilding visitors’ centre in the Scottish Highlands
We are working with a leading conservation charity to enable it to develop a visitors’ centre to support regeneration and rewilding work.

This £2m unsecured 8-10 year bond will pay 6% interest.

Remember that for all of these offers your capital will be at risk if you decide to invest. Returns for these bond offers are not guaranteed and investments are not readily realisable.

In addition to the above IFISA-eligible offers, we are also preparing an Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) share offer. This sustainable business - a certified B Corp - sells award-winning bamboo nappies and wipes and is raising capital for expansion.

We’re working hard to launch these investment offers over the next couple of months. Make sure that you have registered to hear about new opportunities, if not register here.
