  •  Royal Mail Nominee Share Service

    The Royal Mail Nominee Share Service is a convenient way to manage your Royal Mail plc shares without a share certificate.

    The Service is administered by Equiniti Financial Services Limited and provides a facility for shareholders to hold their Royal Mail Shares electronically, without a certificate, in a nominee sponsored by Royal Mail. Shareholders participating in the Service continue to receive dividend payments and annual reports and can attend and vote at Royal Mail’s general meetings. The shareholder is still the beneficial owner of the shares and simply instructs the nominee to buy, sell or transfer the holding on their behalf. The Service is free to join. For further information on how to transfer your certificated Royal Mail shares into the service, please see the Investor FAQs or visit the Equiniti Corporate Sponsored Nominee page.
