An important update on the Certificated Dealing and Corporate Nominee Dealing Services

In July 2020 The Share Centre, provider of Computershare Brokerage Services, became part of interactive investor (ii). Part of that process has included a review by ii of the services they will offer in the future. This review has concluded that they do not intend to provide a certificated or corporate nominee dealing service.

As a result, the Certificated and Corporate Nominee Dealing Services will no longer be operated by The Share Centre with effect from 4.30pm on the 26th November 2021. Final trading instructions must be received by 4pm on 26th November 2021. If you have an enquiry regarding a transaction in process prior to this date, please contact [email protected]

What's happening?
Computershare Investor Services PLC (Computershare) is launching a new service for Certificated and Corporate Nominee Dealing from 29th November 2021. Details of the new service will be available on from this date. Should you wish to use this service to trade your shares, you will be able to register with Computershare from 29th November 2021.

This does not affect any dealing service connected to shares you might hold as part of an Employee Plan administered by Computershare, e.g. through the EquatePlus platform.

If you have a Computershare Trading Account or ISA, you will have been contacted about these separately to request your consent to migrate these to ii.

In the meantime, please use the Computershare Brokerage Services provided by The Share Centre as normal noting the following key dates.
