An alternative gift this Christmas
10th December 2015
Buying presents for friends and loved ones is always ‘fulfilling’ but can be costly too, and the thought of which present for who can be a bit of an overwhelming process. This year however, could be different because when you invest in a business via the Crowd2Fund website for a revenue loan you can invest in established brands and businesses with potential returns of more than twice as much as if you would receive is you put out it into your bank, at the very same time of being rewarded for doing so which could be ideal for a Christmas gift or a well-earned present to yourself.
The Revenue Loan has been specifically designed for established and exciting businesses which need growth capital to expand. It is specifically beneficial for seasonal businesses, because the company raising the loan are able to pay flexible repayment determined by their turnover for the particular month. This means they are able to focus on the key areas of the business investing the money into manufacturing products and making ready for the months where they are busiest and turnover the most sales in the year. The company, therefore, is able to repay more of the loan in the months where there is readily available cash flow. Ruroc, a leading snow sports brand, is a great example of the type of business you can invest in. Not only are they an exciting brand but their ‘all in one’ patented ski and snowboard helmets worth £250 RRP were offered as a reward to investors that pledged £1000 or more. There were many people who supported this growing company in their crowdfund raise, who are currently receiving a 9% APR return on their investment as well as who have received their helmets and ski goggles, many of which are about to be utilised for the up and coming ski season, or which have been packaged up for Christmas gifts this Christmas 2015.
