Capital is at risk and returns are not guaranteed. Crowd bonds are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. They are typically issued by smaller, unquoted companies. They are illiquid investments: there is no secondary market and the bonds are not readily realisable.
EQ is not offering advice on the selection of the bonds and the decision as to whether they are suitable is entirely down to you.
