A Word from Their CEO
“Despite the current uncertainty cast upon us by both Brexit and the current Covid-19 global pandemic, we are seeing a strong increase in new loan applications as well as demand for fixed-income investments such as our bonds”, said Richard Symonds, CEO of Astute Capital Plc. “In order to service the demand, we are pleased to have launched four new bonds over 3 and 5 years, and introduced our new USD and EURO 3-year bonds. We believe the diversity of timeframe, choice of currency available, as well as the return offered through these bonds will help us deliver to our investors and take advantage of the current opportunities, we are seeing in the lending markets”.
Last year, three of their fixed-rate bonds matured, namely, Series 1, Series 7 and Series 12. These bonds were originally listed on the Irish Stock Exchange (Euronext Dublin) and upon maturity returned over £4m back to investors which included all the original investment and promised returns.

Investment in the Astute Capital Plc Bonds is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). A maximum of 2% of the capital raised by the issuer of the bond will be paid out in brokerage fees (the equivalent of a maximum of £2 for every £100 of the total capital raised). This amount will not impact the expected interest payments to be paid to investors as outlines in our documentation. In the event of a loan default or if Astute Capital Plc becomes insolvent, you may lose some or all of your investment, including interest payments due. This is a high-risk investment and is much riskier than a savings account.
