Why invest in Ekopia?

Ekopia is creating a sustainable local economy and our activities have multiplied in the last ten years, investing in worthwhile projects, from renewable energy to affordable housing. We developed some of our own projects, in order to increase our assets and deliver services to support the local community, in addition to making investments in partner organisations. 

Ekopia’s history of investment includes a range of local regeneration projects which benefit the Findhorn Community and surrounding area. These projects include affordable housing developed by Park Ecovillage Trust and New Findhorn Directions, the Phoenix Store and  Findhorn Wind Park, offices that support social enterprise and school buildings. 

How is interest paid?

Ekopia pays interest annually in October into your specified bank account. Any investment period that is less than one year in duration will result in part-interest for the number of days that you invested.

An alternative is to have your interest paid to you in the Findhorn Ecovillage’s local currency – Ekos.

Minimum investment amount

Investment commitment

With some limited exceptions, your investment will be committed for five years. Before this period is over Ekopia will consider withdrawal requests at their discretion. After five years, three months notice is required.
