THE EVOLUTION OF L'AUBIER DERIVES FROM THE INITIATIVE OF THOSE WHO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT, BUT IT IS ONLY THE RECOGNITION AND SUPPORT OF A GROWING CIRCLE OF PARTNERS THAT HAS ALLOW US TO GIVE OUR INITIATIVE CONCRETE EXPRESSION.
You want to partner with a company which places the human being and his environment at the heart of its activities, in keeping with the spirit of our time.
You can invest a specific amount that you do not need in the next 5 years in exchange for immediate benefits.
Join the large circle of more than 1700 partners of L'AUBIER Ltd, a commercial company with ‘public benefit’ ideals and the legal framework for L'AUBIER’s activities.
You invest for a fixed term of five years, at a current interest rate of 1,0%, with first and second tier security against our buildings in Montezillon and Neuchâtel. At maturity, you receive the amount back with interest.
Each year, you are invited to our general meeting. In this meeting we take stock and try to perceive trends affecting the future of humanity and its environment.
You benefit from a unique transparency: your money is exclusively committed to the growth of our activities. You regularly receive our newsletter, ‘Nouvelles’, and the annual accounts of L'AUBIER with their detailed commentary.
We borrow at medium term a substantial sum from a large number of people instead of a small number of financial institution.
Each new bond enlarges the circle of those who recognize and share our concerns, enabling us to do more to foster a better future.
Debenture bonds in L'AUBIER began in 2000. Currently, there are five tranches covering a total of CHF 15,0 million staggered over 5 years. Each bond has a value of CHF 10,000.- and currently earns 1,0% p.a. interest.
The selling price of these is 100,5% of their nominal value of CHF 10,050.-, to pay on the Postfinance account 10-753872-5 (IBAN CH10 0900 0000 1075 3872 5) of L'AUBIER Partenaires. The bonds of L'AUBIER are not publicly traded. They have a tax value equal to their nominal value of CHF 10,000.-, valid for the duration of the loan. They can be resold at any time to a person of your choice and are redeemable by us in case of force majeure. At any time, bonds may be given or bequeathed to our tax-exempt foundation.
