Loan notes are effectively a private borrowing agreement between a company and an investor that cannot be transferred to someone else unless specifically stated and agreed. In contrast, retail corporate bonds and government gilt-edged securities are freely tradeable instruments. Loan notes are not protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. While safeguards are in place, the FCA is very clear that every investor should be aware that their capital is at risk.
