Emerald Knight is currently in the process of paying investors in one of its flagship projects their contracted returns on time and in full. Clients who invested in the carbon offset project sold by Emerald Knight in October 2010 are currently in line to be paid out their investment plus their 30 per cent profit exactly 12 months after investing.
While it seems that a company fulfilling their obligations should not be a news story in itself, there are some important issues to highlight. Firstly, the fact that Emerald Knight is committed to making sure the projects on offer are the ‘best in class’ means that only the most robust offerings in the marketplace are accepted as Emerald Knight investments. This is a recognition of the fact that many investors in this type of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) have not been involved in this market before, and need reassurance not only of the potential of investments, but also the safety and security of investments in the marketplace.
Of equal importance is the fact that Emerald Knight, due to choosing the best investment product available, is able to offer and deliver an investment on time during such tough economic conditions. There are very few investments anywhere on the market that can offer a 30 per cent return within 12 months – fewer still that can do so repeatedly for clients.
Emerald Knight said: “We are extremely pleased to be paying out on this carbon offset investment once again. The project has proved to be an introduction to SRI for a large number of our clients, and at the same time as proving very profitable for them, has opened up the full SRI market to them. Many of our investors have gone on to reinvest successfully in SRI projects, both of the same type and in different spheres.”
“We are currently working on the last few opportunities in the latest tranche of this carbon offset investment, so anyone interested in a fixed 30 per cent return within 12 months can still get involved.”
