Nominations & Voting - UK
Responding to legislative changes to enhance bank/broker service offering
Changes in the UK Companies Act 2006 were a significant milestone in recognising and enhancing the rights of private investors holding shares through a nominee.
In response to the changes and the needs of our bank, broker-dealer clients, Broadridge now offers a fully managed nominations service that gives brokers’ customers the ability to vote all proxies online and receive shareholder materials direct from companies for all positions held under the name of a nominee. Your private investor clients simply sign up through an efficient one-time process and then receive materials direct from the companies in which they invest.
When a shareholder meeting is announced, your clients are automatically sent an email alerting them of the meeting, and directing them back to your website to vote, or alternatively to a voting website supported by Broadridge.
The service provides that the new voting and information rights are properly extended to private investors – it is also proven to increase client traffic to your website.
- Empower your nominee-held investors – and get ahead of coming regulatory change
- Gain competitive advantage by enhancing your clients’ service
- Extend key governance rights to previously disenfranchised shareholders
- Increase traffic to your website – direct clients to your website to vote their shares
- Flexible service solutions to suit your business model
- Coming requirements under RDR and Securities Law Directive can be met now or as needed in future under this service
