Financial performance

The Directors expect that over 20 years the average interest rate will be 6%, though interest rate may vary to some degree year-on-year to allow for variation in performance and availability of funds. If performance in one year does not allow for payment of 6% interest, the Bond’s “roll-over” mechanism allows for higher interest payments in subsequent years. 

Social performance

It is expected that the Community Surplus will be around £20,000 per year for the first 15 years rising to £50,000 per year for years 16 – 20 (after the bank loan has been paid off) - a total of around £2 million over the 30 year life of the project.
