Following the official launch of pre-registration for the Peterborough United Bond, co-owner Stewart Thompson discusses why he and his partners decided to launch it.
“We saw other clubs doing it, like QPR, like Norwich – it’s a smart idea because we get to work together. We as owners get to focus on what you want us to do, which is to try to bring success on the pitch, and supporters get to invest in a bond for things that make sense for the club, for the community, for the fanbase.
“We all win because the infrastructure around our club is stronger, our revenue base is broader. And that helps us with what we’re trying to achieve, to be an established Championship club and become financially self-sustainable. We’re doing things together, for our club.”
He went on to clarify why the bond was the right investment product from the perspective of both the Club and the supporters:
“We’re treating you like an investor. We don’t want you to feel like we’ve asked you to make a donation that you’re never going to see again. This is a proper investment product with a proper return and we’re looking forward to seeing our fans benefit from that return.”
The Peterborough United Bond has been designed to enable supporters to play their part in creating the exciting next chapter for the Club, while benefiting from a return on their investment. The key terms of the Bond are as follows:
- 9% interest per annum
- 15% cash bonus if PUFC is promoted to the Championship by 2026/27
- Eligible for tax-free returns through an Innovative Finance ISA
- Minimum investment £500
Exclusive Bondholder Privileges
As well as an annual interest payment and the possibility of a major bonus if the Club is promoted, a unique set of exclusive, money-can’t-buy Bondholder Privileges are being offered at different investment tiers.
