Shared Interest Advert from 1991

A member recently sent in this advert from the March 1991 issue of New Internationalist.

While the concept remains the same, the terms have changed significantly.

19 years on, we now have over 8,700 members who have invested over £24 million. The minimum deposit is £100 while the maximum is £20k and you no longer need to give 6 months’ notice to make a withdrawal. Unfortunately with the current interest rates as low as they are, we are currently paying 0% interest on members’ investment.
