Getting your money back

Members will have the opportunity to apply to withdraw some or all of their Shares from the Society from year 4 onwards.

Withdrawal of capital is at the directors' discretion but the society will create a reserve to return a proportion of capital back to investors from year 4.

How secure is your money?

You will only receive interest if the Society generates sufficient funds and if the directors choose to pay interest in line with their stated policy. Your original investment will not normally change in value, but it can reduce in value if the net asset value of the shares falls below their original value. 

This investment is not covered by any government compensation scheme.

Keeping track of your investment

The details of your investment are recorded on your share certificate and by the Society.

The Society will send out a full annual report once a year together with an invitation to the annual general meeting. 

If you subscribe to the Ethex Portfolio Service you can track your investment and follow the performance of the business in your personal portfolio.

Tax considerations
