With over 25 years experience, our asset re-unification team specialise in the business of research, identification and location of unclaimed assets. We represent beneficiaries advising them on the process of recovery, preparing the necessary paperwork and submitting claims on their behalf. We have an in-depth knowledge of the investment and registration industries and through the use of our advanced software and state of the art investor location tools used, your data is held and processed securely on our premises.
Since new banking regulations have come into effect, regarding unclaimed assets in the banks and building societies, the rest of the financial industry have been turning their attention to their own approach to this industry-wide concern.
Additionally, within share registration, in addition to the risks of extending dormant account legislation to cover equities, there lies a significant opportunity for financial crime and identity theft as a consequence of the volume of documents issued to each shareholder on an annual basis. By operating an asset re-unification scheme, combined with regular health checks of your share register data, we can assist a company in significantly reducing the risk to both the company and its shareholders.
Keeping track of shareholders is a challenge but we think that there is much that we can do to help you be proactive in re-uniting your shareholders with their assets. Improving the accuracy of your share register will help the efficiency of managing these registers. You, in turn, will save money.
There are two key reasons for unclaimed shareholder assets. The first is that the shareholder has moved address and not kept in touch; they are known as a 'gone away'. The second is that they have died and that the correct instructions were not left with the estate.
