This offer is primarily of interest to Cornwall's residents, including those who have lived there and moved away. However, MSP believes that the benefits of a more inclusive society is of wider interest to socially-driven investors because it offers a model for raising funds to support capital and enterprise projects that benefit the local community. It also keepa most of rhw funds circulating locally, rather than leaking out of the area, thereby creating a virtuous circle of social investment. As MSP will offer a reasonable annual return to shareholders through the payment of interest on the sums they have invested, we believe this offer will therefore also be of interest to investors from outside the local community, who support its aims.
This offer is not for those who wish to make short term investments to maximise their financial returns. Rather, it is for those who are prepared to invest their money for the medium to long term, in order to support the social benefits generated by MSP, while also earning a return that is broadly equivalent to, and indeed currently better than, those that can be found on the high street.
