A high street bank held a shareholder roadshow in Hove yesterday evening (Wednesday 11 June).
Santander said that the meeting at Hove Town Hall was intended as an informal way of providing useful information to small investors.
The company said that it had 1.6 million shareholders across the country and wanted to give them a chance to speak to members of the shareholder relations team close to their homes.
Among the advice available was how to buy more shares and sell or transfer existing shares. Information was also available about the bank’s financial performance, dividend payments and share price.
One shareholder who attended said: “There’s no hard sell. It’s fairly relaxed and informative. I’ve been thinking about giving some of my shares to my grandchildren and this has been a very helpful starting point.”
