Fixed Term Withdrawable Shares are issued subject to Terms and Conditions and the rules of The East of England Co-operative Society Limited and are part of the Society’s share capital. The balance on a member’s share account plus Fixed Term Withdrawable Shares held by that member may not exceed £100,000. The Society abides by a code of practice that requires it to provide a statement to its shareholders of the nature of their investment and any change affecting it and by making this application you acknowledge that we have made that code of practice available to you. The position you occupy as a shareholder of the Society is no different from that of a shareholder in any other corporate body in so far as, if the Society fails, you may not have all or any of your investment returned to you.  Owning shares in the Society is not the same as investing in the shares of a company.  It is primarily for the purpose of supporting the Society in furthering its purpose and objects.  There are various important differences between Society shares and company shares and these are set out in the Terms and Conditions. Co-operative societies, unlike banks and building societies, are not subject to prudential supervision by the Financial Conduct Authority. This means that the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, which covers bank, building society and credit union accounts, does not apply to shares held with the Society, so you cannot claim compensation under the Scheme in the event of the Society not being able to meet requests for withdrawal of shares. The East of England Co-operative Society Limited reserves the right to decline an application for a Fixed Term Withdrawable Share at its sole discretion and without further explanation.
