I am with barclays. They sent me voting papers about 2 week ago. I voted over the phone. It was quite easy. NO charge. If they would have ask me for £25 . I would have threaten to move brokers or not voted. Scandalous !!!!!!
I immediately got on to Beaufort Securities about the scandal of not being able to vote.
Their reply - "Thank you for your message. We do allow for clients' to vote at AGM's. If you are happy to accept the £25 charge, you will be able to vote in the postponed AGM, and your request will be passed onto our Corporate Actions Department.
Customer Services Department"
So, if I initiate action and make special application to vote AND pay £25, I can vote. Needless to say but this is prohibitve as I'm not going to fork out £25.
Imagine this situation is common amoung nominee account holders which probably accounts for 90% of us??
