“Beside the great rate achieved, the Beehive business model is clear and gives me control over which businesses I want to invest in. Beehive also allows me to invest in Sharia Compliant businesses which is an important factor for me.”


“I welcome the opportunity to invest some of my funds into sustainable SMEs like Enerwhere, as it means I can invest in companies that meet some of my personal values and investment criteria and it allows me the opportunity to invest in environmentally sound businesses which I found hard to do before.

It’s good to see companies from forward thinking industries such as renewables on Beehive as I wouldn’t normally be able to invest in these outside of their platform.”

As a Beehive investor I am supporting local businesses, helping the local economy and generating an excellent return for myself.”
