Why invest in Ekopia?
Ekopia is creating a sustainable local economy through supporting three housing developments in the Findhorn Village area. Ekopia’s history of investment includes a range of local regeneration projects which benefit the Findhorn Community and surrounding area. Some of these projects include affordable housing, the Phoenix Store and the Findhorn Wind Park. In 2017 Ekopia is focussing on gathering support for The Housing Project, developing affordable homes for people in the Highland and Islands.
How is interest paid?
Ekopia automatically 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 months that you invested.
You can also choose to accrue your interest on request – once you’ve reached £500 you can then buy further shares. Another alternative is to have your interest paid to you in the Findhorn Ecovillage’s local currency – Ekos.
