How we manage our investments

Ever since our launch in 2012 we have set out to offer quality long term investments across a range of different sectors. This means we take great care with the selection and ongoing management of the investments you see on our platform.

  • We carefully select the people we work with and investments we offer

    We work with a range of partners, project developers and companies to identify potential investments to offer to our investors. We look for relatively low risk infrastructure investments that can give a good return while also delivering the wider social or environmental benefits that our investors are looking for.

  • We follow a rigourous due diligence process

    We focus on quality rather than quantity in terms of the investments we offer. No investment goes live on Abundance without going through our due diligence process. This typically takes 3 months from start to finish and includes an independent audit. Our team checks the legal and financial aspects of the investment and use independent experts for technical advice (such as on particular energy technologies or systems).

    We also work with our issuers to create the investment Offer Document to ensure investors get full disclosure of the information they need to make an informed investment decision.

  • We manage the investment across the full term

    Our responsibility doesn’t end once the investment closes. We work with the investment issuers over the full investment term, and we do more than just managing the payment of your investment returns. We also monitor investment cash returns against the initial forecast, and provide relevant performance updates to investors as the investment term progresses.

    Abundance also ensures accounts are in order and relevant contracts and insurances (such as Operation and Maintenance) remain in place. In addition, all our issuers are also audited on an annual basis by an independent accountancy firm, to add extra third party oversight into this process.

  • We also use our investments to help reach our financial goals

    Many of the Abundance team and Directors buy our investments as part of their own investment portfolios. This isn’t just because we want to back our own business. Its because we recognise the potential for our investments to generate income to help meet our own financial goals.

As with any investment product there are risks. Part or all of your original invested capital may be at risk and any return on your investment depends on the success of the project invested in. You should be prepared to hold Abundance investments for their full term (and many will have terms of more than 15 years). Abundance investments may not be readily realisable (and their value can rise or fall). They may be secured or unsecured, and where they are secured this does not ensure repayment. Estimated rates of return can be variable and estimates are no guarantee of actual return. Specific risks will apply in relation to each product. Consider all risks before investing and read the Offer Document for each investment.
