Not being recognised as the beneficial owner of stock has long been a problem for UK investors when holding shares electronically with a broker.
Shareholder Voting & Information is a free opt in service that enables you to receive shareholder materials and vote on decisions directly affecting your UK registered shareholdings held in your nominee account.
TD Direct Investing is the first non advisory broker to offer this service in the UK.
When there is an event, for example Voting by Proxy or Annual/semi annual reports, materials will be received electronically directly from the company which you hold shares. They will be placed into your Voting & Information mailbox which is available in your secure website. You will receive an email notification from TD Direct Investing each time there is an event. We will not attach any documents to the email for security reasons.
Please note that this is an electronic service but in some circumstances an alternative method may be used.
Your Voting & Information Mailbox
Each new event will be placed in your Voting & Information Mailbox and they will be listed in date order with the most recent at the top of the list. You can also sort the list by clicking on one of the column headings.
To view an event or place your vote click on the link on the 'Type of Action' column, for example 'VOTE', on the row of the company/event that you wish to view.
Note: If you click on an event in the 'Type of Action' column you will be redirected to an external website powered by Global Proxy Vote and Broadridge.
