Launched in 2014 Allia’s RCB Bonds provide charitable organisations with a simple and affordable way to raise medium or long-term fixed-rate debt whilst offering a transparent and liquid market for investors seeking investments that deliver attractive yields alongside tangible social impact. Admission to trading on London Stock Exchange’s Order book for Retail Bonds enables investors to buy and sell these social investment products in the secondary market.
