Updating personal information
I have moved house, how do I change my address?
Please remember to tell Equiniti if you move home. If you have a Shareview Portfolio, you can change your details online.
Alternatively, if you hold 2,500 shares or less, you can change your address quickly and easily over the telephone by contacting Equiniti.
If you hold more than 2,500 shares, please download the form below and return it to Equiniti together with a copy of your share certificate.
I have just got married, how can I change the name my shares are held in?
To change your name on the UK share register, please send documents confirming this change (for example, your marriage certificate or change of name deed) to Equiniti.
What should I do if a shareholder has died?
You should write to Equiniti, sending a certified copy of the death certificate, together with the original Grant of Probate (or a sealed office copy), or the Letters of Administration. Alternatively, you can call Equiniti, to report the death of a shareholder and speak with an agent directly to discuss the steps required.
The name(s) of the deceased person(s) personal representative(s) will be put on the share register while the estate is finalised. Equiniti will then place a temporary marker on the register to ensure that wherever possible, they do not issue further dividend payments or other correspondence in the shareholder's name. They will also send you the forms you need to complete.
How can I update my bank details?
Alternatively, if you hold 2,500 shares or less, you can update your bank details quickly and easily over the telephone by contacting Equiniti.
If you hold more than 2,500 shares, you can download a Bank Mandate Form and return it to Equiniti.
Managing my shareholding
Can I request that I receive all communications electronically?
You do not have to receive paper shareholder documentation. Many shareholders choose to receive their communications electronically. Equiniti provide a free, convenient online service, Shareview, where you can access your shareholding online quickly and easily.
To register for Shareview just visit www.shareview.co.uk. All you need is your Shareholder Reference Number, which can be found on your share certificate. If you managed your Old Mutual plc shares electronically you will continue to receive your shareholder information in this way.
How can I transfer my shares to someone else?
If you wish to transfer your shares to someone else (for example, your spouse or partner or in an 'off market' sale). As these transactions usually do not involve a stockbroker, a stock transfer form should be completed and returned to Equiniti together with the share certificate.
I have lost my share certificate – how can I get a new one?
You should contact our registrars, Equiniti, and ask for a replacement. You will be sent a letter of indemnity to sign and return. A new certificate will then be sent to you. Please note, there is a charge for this service.
I have more than one share certificate. Can they be combined?
If you have more than one share certificate, we can combine these into one for you. Please send them to Equiniti together with a covering letter. There is no charge for this service. Share certificates are sent at your own risk so you may wish to send them by special delivery for added security.
Can I donate my shares to charity?
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 does Quilter pay dividends?
We announce dividends at the same time as the half year and full year results.
When will the next dividend be paid?
The 2019 interim dividend will be paid on Friday 20 September 2019 to shareholders on the UK and South African share registers on Friday 30 August 2019.
How will I receive my dividends?
Any dividend election you made on your Old Mutual plc shares will be applied to your Quilter plc shareholding. If you don’t already mandate your dividend, it is quick and easy to receive any dividends direct to your bank or building society account.

Can I receive my dividends in other currencies?

Do I have to pay tax on dividends?
We are unable to advise shareholders on taxation. Your tax obligations will vary depending on your jurisdiction and financial circumstances.
We recommend all shareholders maintain records of their Quilter plc dividend payments, share purchases and sales. We will issue a consolidated Dividend Confirmation for each financial year with the Final Dividend payment to shareholders who have their dividends paid directly into a bank or building society account. Shareholders who receive a dividend cheque posted to their registered address receive a Dividend Confirmation with each payment.
For further assistance, please speak to an independent professional tax or financial adviser.
