The Co-Owners and Board of Peterborough United are considering the option of issuing a Peterborough United Bond, similar to those issued in recent years by Norwich City and Queens Park Rangers, to raise capital to help finance important work to upgrade the Weston Homes Stadium and progress the planning application for the proposed Embankment stadium.
A bond is a simple investment instrument through which the Club would borrow money from investors for a set period of time (the “term”) and pay an annual interest rate. At the end of the term the original sum is repaid to investors. If it were to go ahead, a Peterborough United Bond would have a 5-year term, pay an attractive rate of interest, and be eligible for investment via an ISA, meaning UK taxpayers would be able to take interest tax-free.
Before deciding whether to proceed with this option, the Board feels that it is important to understand the level of interest amongst our supporters for such an offer, so would appreciate if you could complete a very short survey. It should take no more than two minutes, the feedback of supporters on this idea is extremely important to the Club, and everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a draw to win a £250 Amazon voucher.

(Please note, unfortunately a Bond offering would only be open to supporters over the age of 18, so that also applies to this survey and competition).
On behalf of the Board, thank you for taking the time to complete the survey
