HibeezabIt’s very good IMO.
The biggest difference is AberDNA is a membership, HSL is a vehicle to buy shares. Personally I feel a membership would have been better for Hibs.
HSL feels somehow disconnected from the club, like it’s still a separate entity. AberDNA has it’s own easily accessible section of the clubs official website - I can’t find the same for HSL? Also Aberdeen’s has a clear mission statement, a clear goal, much better than HSL.
Thank you for your thoughts, it does highlight an interesting dilemma.
In the past when the Club have sought voluntary funding we understand that there has not always been a great take up with some anecdotal evidence suggesting a reluctance from some to hand over money for nothing. We suspect that it was in response to this ( along with other reasons ) that the Board decided to progress with the current strategy where supporters are actually receiving something tangible in return, an ownership stake.
The most successful fan ownership group operates along similar lines, fans receive ownership in return for donations and that organisation is a seperate entity from the Club.
We believe our mission statement and goals are clear and would of course welcome any feedback that would allow us to make them clearer.
