 Dear Companists,

We were pleased that some of you were able to attend our video chat last week. We hope that we answered all your questions concenring the tablet, our marketing and sales strategy, and the future of Nepos clearly and comprehensibly. If you didn't have time but would have liked to participate, you can watch the recording here.

Nepos is an investment project with social added value

We introduced Susanne Lederer-Pabst to you in the context of our entry into the Austrian market. She is the owner and managing partner of the sustainability consultancy 4-your-biz and has invested in Nepos as a business angel. She has written a guest article on the Companisto Blog in which she explains the abstract term "Impact Investing" using the concrete example of Nepos.

 

Impact investing is on the rise

Speaking of impact investing: A current article in Wirschaftswoche examines the trend towards impact investing, especially among young investors. It says: "(...) more and more funds and ETFs are taking up this concept. According to the Global Impact Investing Network's 2018 Annual Impact Investor Survey, international respondents (mainly investment companies and foundations) invested more than USD 228 billion sustainability in 2017, with average annual growth rates of 13 percent in assets under managment over the past five years. Many other asset classes can only dream of such high demand."

The market for "impact-oriented investing" (Wirkungsorientiertes Investieren; WI), as it is also called here, is still much smaller in Germany, she notes in her article. There is room for improvement - and anyone who wants to experience what it is like to support a project with social added value can start with us.

 

Best greetings,

Paul

Note

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
