The straightforward answer is that MIRIS is not a bank, so we don’t charge our investors exorbitant bank charges that are often associated with investments made through financial institutions. Nor are we brokers, so broker fees are out of the question too.
“So, what’s the catch?” you might be thinking. There is no catch.
“Investors get full transparency, because that is one of the best ways to ensure that their money is safe,” says John Campbell, Head of MIRIS-X.
MIRIS is an independently-audited technology, solutions and real estate company that’s registered on Norway’s Central Securities Depository. This allows us to offer investors green bonds, as well as a number of other financial solutions, that support sustainable projects. And because we offer these investment opportunities directly through our custom-built MIRIS X platform, there are no associated fees.
Instead, potential investors can invest any amount – from as little as €100 – directly through the MIRIS X platform. And if they choose, they can also buy and sell their investments directly, quickly and easily, within a matter of minutes, to other investors through the platform, without incurring any fees. We merely oversee the sale within a secured environment and a hassle-free manner that doesn’t require you to jump through too many hoops. We’ve designed the MIRIS X platform with the end-user in mind, so that it’s easy to navigate, simple to understand and seamless to process transactions.
And because there are no fees, you can put that money towards your investments instead – just another way we’re trying to help make the world cleaner, greener and a better place to live for all.
How does MIRIS make money?
That’s probably your next question.
Our main priority is to construct green real estate and sustainable cities that speak to the United Nations’ Development Goals. Our projects also include energy efficiency and renewable energy, clean transportation, sustainable water and waste management, as well as pollution prevention and control.
Our flagship project is the construction the world’s first energy-positive hotel, Svart. The hotel will produce 60% more renewable energy than it will consume and will be off the grid within five years of its construction.
Once the hotel is sold (or becomes operational) it will earn money, and so we will earn money. It’s as simple as that. We want to show the world that it’s possible to prioritise the planet and still be economically viable. We want ‘green’ to become the global standard.
