The minimum investment per individual is £10, which provides 1 share. The maximum statutory investment per individual is £100,000, which provides 10,000 shares.
We are seeking a minimum of £125,000 from this offer with an optimum of £150,000.
Much Marcle Community Shop Ltd is a Community Benefit Society registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Its registered number is 8400 and the registered office will be at the shop. Shareholders become members of the Society and regardless of the number of shares held each member has one vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Society.
A community benefit society is registered with, but not authorised by, the Financial Conduct Authority and therefore the money you pay for your shares is not safeguarded by any depositor protection scheme or dispute resolution scheme. As your investment could carry a risk, please consider it carefully and, if needed, seek independent financial advice.
