Shareholder Rights Petition Issued 29 October 2014
How you can support the Shareholder Rights Campaign
You are probably aware that we recently launched a campaign to improve the rights of individual investors. Specifically we would like to ensure that those in nominee accounts (who are the vast majority of private shareholders) obtain the Right to Vote, the Right to Attend General Meetings and the Right to Receive Information directly from companies which they own.
There is now a petition on our web site which we would ask you to sign to support this campaign. It is present here:
Please do sign it now if you have not already done so to ensure you get a guaranteed vote and have a say in the way your investments are run in future. Also pass this email on to any friends or colleagues you know who might be interested in signing it. The more people we get to sign it the more likely it is we will achieve some success.
