This 7-day Access Bond provides a flexible way to put your money to work in the short-term. This could be useful if you are planning a purchase, anticipating a tax bill or waiting for a longer-term Downing bond to become available. In addition to the returns and flexible access offered by the Bond, your investment will make an impact by funding energy infrastructure in the UK.

Bagnall Energy will initially make £2.5 million available from the wider £20 million offer. You can request your money back at any time during the bond term and Bagnall Energy expects to return capital and interest requested within seven days. Assuming the full £20 million is issued, the loan-to-value (“LTV”) ratio of the bond will be 13%.* This compares the level of assets the company has at its disposal with the anticipated level of debt.

The Bond is unsecured, therefore the company could take on secured debt which would rank ahead of you. Should this happen, you will be notified of the updated LTV. You will rank ahead of shareholders in the event of a default or liquidation. Shareholders have £136 million of capital invested in Bagnall Energy as at 30 June 2018.*

The 7-day Access Bond provides an investment with a return that beats current UK inflation (CPI-2.7% as at the end of August) while allowing you to request a redemption at any time.
