Asset Reunification

Georgeson works on behalf of companies to reunite people with outstanding shareholder payments. In many cases, individuals are unaware that they are entitled to an outstanding shareholder payment or may have simply forgotten about their existence.
 
To date Georgeson, globally, has reunited over 1.5 million people worldwide with approximately $3 billion worth of previously unclaimed entitlements.

Why have you contacted me?

We are working on behalf of a Company, which is attempting to make contact with you to notify you of outstanding shareholder payments to which you are entitled, but in respect of which you may not be aware.
 

How did you get my address?

We obtained your address from the Company. However, if the Company does not have up to date details for you, we have worked with external organisations, including Australia Post, using publically available information to locate you at your new address. 
 

How can I trust that this is legitimate?

Georgeson forms part of the Computershare group of companies, and we have been appointed by the Company’s share registrar (on behalf of the Company) to contact some of the Company’s past and present shareholders who have shareholder payments owing to them with a view to returning those amounts. If you have any concerns, or require any further information, about this matter, please contact on us on the Georgeson Asset Reunification Service line on 1330 783 074.
 

Why am I only hearing about this now?

Earlier correspondence may have been sent to a previous address from which you have subsequently moved, or you may simply not have responded to that correspondence.
 

What proof of identification do I need to provide in making a claim?

Having contacted you, we do need to positively verify your identification to ensure you are the person to whom we are seeking to return outstanding shareholder payments. In order to make a successful claim through Georgeson’s asset reunification service, whether using our website or the claim form mailed to you, you will need to provide the following information.
