If you have recently received a letter from us it may be because one of our clients is attempting to make contact with you or you could be due an entitlement of which you may not be aware.
Often, individuals are unaware that they are entitled to an unclaimed asset associated with their shareholding or may have simply forgotten about them. There are many reasons why our client may have lost touch with you or your asset having become 'lost':
> You may have moved house without providing an updated address
> You may have change your name through marriage or divorce
> Executors or beneficiaries of an estate may be unaware of an investment when a family member passes away
> You may have a complex range of investments some of which you may have lost track
If you have received a letter requesting further information, please call us on 0861 119 900, complete and return the letter in the self-addressed envelope provided or fill in our online enquiry form which you will find on our "I am looking for a form" page. We would like to positively identify you as the beneficial owner.
If you have received a claim pack from Georgeson it is because you are due an entitlement. Please read the information below or call us on 0861 119 900 if you have any questions.
How to claim your entitlement
You will need to complete and return the form to claim your entitlement. Unfortunately, you cannot submit a claim online; it should be returned to us by post. It is very important that you make sure your claim form is completed and signed correctly, and that certified copies of any requested documentation are attached. Please also provide us with a daytime telephone number and email address so that we can contact you if there are any queries relating to your claim. If your details have changed (e.g. you have moved house or changed your name), we may require proof of the change.
Do you have dividend payments due?
Georgeson has been engaged to embark on a special project to update the shareholder information recorded on the share registers of a number of companies. An accurate share register ensures that you, the shareholder, receive the assets due to you.
We are asking you to provide us with your latest information, such as address, contact and banking details etc., by completing and returning the shareholder information form. We will institute a search for payments from dividends or other corporate events that are due to you. We assure you that the information you provide will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and will only be used for the purpose for which it is provided.
Please return the completed and signed form to
Fax 011 688 5248 or
Banking details are required to ensure that future dividend payments are paid directly into your bank account, eliminating the risk of fraud and the delays associated with cheque payments. Should you have outstanding dividend or scheme payments, the monies due to you will be deposited into your bank account.
Have you lost your share certificate?
If so, visit Computershare's website to find out how you can replace your share certificate.
Dematerialisation of your shares
Share certificates are easily lost, stolen or destroyed and we recommend that, if you hold your shares in paper format, you have them dematerialised. You will also avoid the inconvenience of having to dematerialise your shares should you wish to sell them.
If you wish to dematerialise your shares and would like to open a custody account with Computershare, please refer to the booklet "Opening a Custody and Settlement Account" for instructions. You will also have to include your share certificate when returning the forms and we recommend you use registered post.
If you already have a custody account and have not been FICA verified, the booklet will also provide you with all the requirements for doing so.
