7% Interest!

Recommended Posts

http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/business/lancashire-county-cricket-club-debut-7960170?ptnr_rid=78788&icid=eml_MENBusiness_business3Title

offering seven per cent gross annual interest, made up of five per cent in cash and two per cent in Credit4Cricket Units - for investments from £1,000. Credit4Cricket Units can be redeemed against the Club’s international and domestic tickets and hospitality products, such as food and beverage packages and membership fees.

Even without the 2% of non-cash interest it's tempting..

That's 5% + perks. I can get 5% for much lower risk than that, and perks sometimes turn up. I can also get 7% for what looks to me like lower risk, though maybe that's less clear-cut.

But if you're a cricket fan and value the perks, it could represent good value in terms of combining an investment with supporting a good cause. A lot of my money is invested that way, in projects I support with the hope of a good return but a higher risk than I'd want to accept from a pure investment.

[edit to add] The income-generating portfolio that's paying my rent is yielding about 9% on what I've put in, together with a decent capital gain. All net of tax!

I've shared many times on HPC. Venture Capital. And I took another look at the spreadsheet: it's yielding above 10% (on net cost, not current value) this year.

[edit to add] On topic for HPC: Zoopla was a Venture Capital investment that turned a good profit. Though that was some time before the stockmarket flotation this year, which didn't in itself affect that profit.
