Petition Give all shareholders a voice by bringing Company Law into the 21st Century

Help more investors engage with UK plcs by modernising the Companies Act: Give beneficial shareholders the right to direct info on plcs they invest in & plcs the right to visibility of who their shareholders are, make email a requirement to shareholding registration, & recognise digital AGMs.

More details

Outdated legislation stops shareholder voices being heard. Almost half of individual shareholders can’t directly engage with the company they invest in, as they invest via platforms, the rest are constrained by a paper-based system. At the same time, companies are losing sight of who their investors are. Digital first reform will be better for shareholders, better for business and ultimately, better for Britain – making the UK a more attractive place to invest and to list.
