As a result of the strong demand we’re experiencing from investors for our projects, we have launched a bond investment - the MELT Bond. Bondholders receive :
- Priority access to future equity investment offers – projects are expected to offer returns of 24-28% per annum
- An enhanced rate of return (circa 2% additional return pa) on future equity investment offers.
- A 10% pa return during the period that funds are held in the bond ready to invest.
Funds held in held in the MELT bond ready to invest are secured by a charge over our investment property portfolio. We're planning to launch at least four projects in the next 12 months and so we envisage that investors should have a new project offered to them to invest in within 3 months of investing in the MELT Bond.
Investors are not obliged to invest their money in equity investment opportunities when they are offered. You can decide whether or not you like the terms of the offer and choose to invest or leave your money in the bond instead if you prefer.
We will use the funds raised by the MELT bond to secure new projects which we will then raise equity for. The MELT Bond will help us secure projects that we can offer to investors as equity investment opportunities.
The MELT bond has a 5 year term and funds can be withdrawn after they have been in the bond for 12 months by giving three months notice. Interest will accumulate for whatever period funds are invested in the bond until funds are withdrawn or re-invested in another offer. The initial raise amount is £500,000. As of the 6th of May, we have over £100,000 raised and a further 300,000 pledged. Availability is limited so if you are interested in investing, please visit the CrowdWithUs website.

INVEST IN OUR PROJECTS
Since November 2017, we have crowdfunded around £1.5m in equity from investors for our property development projects. We receive a high level of interest from investors in investing in our projects. The recent offer on our Cinderford project filled in 18 hours and was around ten times oversubscribed. If you join our investor list using the Investor Registration form here, we'll ensure that you are the first to know when new offers are about to launch.
Given the strong demand we’re experiencing from investors for our projects, we will shortly be launching a bond investment - the MELT Bond. This will offer investors priority access to future opportunities, an enhanced rate of return and a good return while it's held in the bond ready to invest in a project. For details of how this works, see below.
For smaller investments, we work with investors via Crowdfunding platforms. Details of our current investment offers, as well as information regarding past investment offers are shown on this page. It’s now possible to invest pension funds in our Crowdfunded projects using a SSAS. We seek to offer investors projected annual returns of 26-30% on equity investments in development projects.
Larger investment amounts
11th of November - £1.13m raised
On the 22nd of October 2018, we launched an investment offer on Lime Grove, our development in Tuffley, Gloucester. We held a launch party at M Club Victoria - some pictures from the launch party are shown below. Over £600K was invested on the first day. We hit £837K within a week of launch and closed the offer on the 11th of November with the full £1.13m raised from 45 investors. The offer was oversubscribed - a further £600K that we could not accomodate came in after the deal had closed.
We have started work on site already - less than a week after the offer closed. If you would like to see pictures of progress on site, visit the Lime Grove page by clicking on this link.
Previous Investment Offers
21-23 Market St - Closed 14th July 2018
At 4pm on 7th July 2018, we launched an investment offer on 21-23 Market St, our development in Cinderford, Gloucestershire. It went like a rocket ! By 10am on Wednesday morning, we had over £300,000 of funds committed. When the offer closed, we had interest from investors with over £1.5m in funds. The level of interest was a lot more than we could accommodate in that raise, so if you're interested in our current offers, we recommend registering early and depositing funds with the crowdfunding platform so you're ready to invest once the project launches.
ONE62 - Closed November 2017
On 27th September 2017, we launched an investment offer on ONE62, our development in Hythe, Kent. Our minimum funding target was £100,000 with a total funding target of £150,000. Due to an unanticipated level of demand from investors, we closed the offer after having raised a total of £200,000. This was the maximum amount of funding we could accomodate in this project. £130,000 was raised via Simple Crowdfunding and a further £70K from private investors who invested directly with us.
