Shareholder Perks

Income and capital growth are not the only benefits of share ownership

Shareholder Perks

Shareholder Perks

The information below was believed to be correct at the time of publishing. However, the companies concerned reserve the right to change their rules and regulations regarding shareholders, or withdraw any concessions at any time. There is normally a period of time before new shareholders become eligible for concessions.

We have included the name and telephone number of the Registrars with each entry so you can check that the perks have not changed before investing. The value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. If you are unsure of the suitability of investing in shares please seek advice.

If you wish to claim any discount or perk you are entitled to, or have a query regarding any shareholder perk, please contact your Beaufort Securities broker.
