You can provide Equiniti with the relevant information by any of the following three ways:
- by submitting the details online at: www.shareview.co.uk/info/directdividends;
- by telephoning Equiniti on +44 (0) 371 384 2985 where Equiniti’s teams are ready to assist with any queries and register the relevant details; OR
- by posting a completed bank mandate form to Equiniti at: Equiniti, Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex, BN99 6DA.
