Invest step by step with Genervest 

Are you looking for an investment in clean energy? One that will help us build a sustainable future without fossil fuels, empower people to take initiatives and strengthen local communities? And all this combined with better returns than your usual investment? Genervest is made for you!  It helps you invest directly in people’s projects and have control on where your money goes in the most simple and secure way. 

In order to make it even more easier and clear, we will walk you through the investment process step by step! 

 

How to sign up

It’s quick and simple: You can sign up at Genervest’s investment platform by using your google or facebook account or by creating a username and password. Just click here and you will find information for each project, you can create a personal virtual wallet and decide how to spread your money into different projects, or maybe just start off with one. 

 

How to create your account and virtual wallet

Your wallet is like a bank account! You can deposit and withdraw as and when you want to. To initialize it,  you need to go to the ”User profile” tab (or click on the notification on the top of the page). When you create your account, you will be asked to provide your identification documents to ensure that your account and investments are safe and secure, so make sure you have them (ID, driving licence  or passport) close by. You will also have to create a pin which will be your virtual signature, in order to verify your investments and other activities in the platform. 

We use Veriff and Arkane applications as trusted third party services using blockchain that ensure that all your transactions are simple and totally safe.

How to deposit?

You can deposit funds to your wallet from any bank and there is no limit. Just go to the “wallet” tab and click on the “Deposit” button. In the Deposit page you will find Genervest’s bank account details and your wallet’s reference code along with all you need to know to make this transaction. Copy them and use them when you make the deposit via your bank. 

Please remember to add the reference code to the all reference and comments fields when you make the deposit, so the system can link your deposit to your wallet as soon as the funds are received.. Depending on your bank, it may take up to 48 hours for your funds to arrive and they may charge you for the transaction, but we wont charge you anything!

Now you are ready to invest in a future without fossil fuels!

 

How do we select projects for you?

Everything you may want to know about each Genervestee’s project is on the platform from the project description and the team that is preparing it, to the business plan and due diligence! Our projects are located in various places and offer different terms, depending on their technology, size, financial needs and risk. 

Each Genervestee and project goes through due diligence and an approvals process and receives the appropriate assistance from our Support Team to get it funding ready (get the required permits, licences and approvals, finish the business model etc.). Finally the investment opportunities must receive Genervest’s investment committee approval to get listed on the Platform. 

How to invest

Once you’ve made your choice, you are a few clicks away from completing your investment:  just go to the project’s listing and click “Invest”. You need to fill the amount you want to invest and verify your transaction with your pin. Just like that: simple and secure! 

You will receive in reply an email that verifies your investment with a copy of the project’s listing details. When the target is reached and the final contracts completed your investment will be finalised under the conditions contained in the listing details attached to your email confirmation and Genervestees will be ready to pave the way to a brighter and just future for all of us! You can cancel your investment at any time until the transaction has been completed and the funds transferred to the Genervestee.

When do you get your money back

Every project will be online for a specific period (usually 3-6 months) during which our members will be able to select them for investment. 

Genervestors funds will be transferred to Genervestees when the funding period is over and Genervestees have secured all licences and approvals. You can read all about this at the “Due diligence and Technical information” part in each project listing. 

Genervestees will then sign a loan or investment agreement with Genervest and you  will start getting your money back in your wallet from which you can withdraw them any time and deposit them to your bank account. 

If the investment goal is not reached or the investment does not close for some other reason we will notify you and your funds will immediately be transferred back to your wallet with no charges.
