What should I do if a shareholder has died?
Please contact our Registrars as soon as possible. The action you need to take depends on whether the shares were held in sole or joint names, and the Registrars will be able to help you with the documentation required and make the process as straightforward as possible for you.

Managing my shareholding
Can I request that I receive all communications electronically?
Yes. You do not have to receive paper shareholder documentation. Many shareholders choose to receive their communications electronically. Our Registrars provide a free, convenient and secure Investor Centre where you can access your shareholding online quickly and easily.
To register for Investor Centre just visit:
All you need is your postal code and your new Quilter Shareholder Reference Number, which can be found on your share certificate, share account statement or your dividend advice.
How can I transfer my shares to someone else?
You need to contact our Registrars, who will tell you what information and documents they need in order to effect the transfer.
I have lost my share certificate – how can I get a new one?
You should notify our Registrars as soon as possible, either in writing or by telephone, so that a restriction can be placed on the holding in case anyone attempts to use your certificate fraudulently. You will then be sent a letter of indemnity, which must be completed and returned to the Registrars, so that a replacement certificate can be issued. A fee will be payable for this to cover the administration costs involved.
What is Quilter plc’s dividend policy?
We will target a dividend pay-out ratio of 40% to 60% of post-tax operating profits. We expect to pay an interim and a final dividend each financial year.
It is expected that the final and interim dividends will be paid in the approximate proportions of two-thirds (final dividend) and one-third (interim dividend), of the total dividends payable in respect of a financial year, taking into account the underlying cash generation, cash resources, capital position, distributable reserves and market conditions at the time.
When will the next dividend be paid?
The next Quilter plc dividend payment is expected to be the final dividend in respect of the year ended 31 December 2018. This will be paid following approval of the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 at the Annual General Meeting of the Company, currently expected to be held in May 2019.
The Directors expect this dividend to be determined by a pay-out at the lower end of the target range and to reflect the expected split of interim and final dividends.
How will I receive my dividends?
For your security, Quilter plc will only pay your dividend to the bank account currently registered with Link Market Services. Any election you made on your Old Mutual plc shares will be applied to your Quilter plc shareholding.
To register your bank details, please go on line or contact Link Market Services.
What currency will I receive my dividend in?
All dividends are declared in Pounds Sterling for shareholders on the UK share register and South African Rand for shareholders on the South African register. The foreign exchange rate will be determined the day before the Directors declare the dividend. For shareholders on the register in Malawi, Namibia and Zimbabwe the custodian will pay your dividend in local currency using the foreign exchange rate on the day the dividend is paid.
How will I receive dividend information?
Shareholders will receive a bi-annual dividend statement each year.
