A YouTube video on shareholder rights

This blog gives you the latest topical news plus some informal comments on them from ShareSoc’s directors and other contributors. These are the personal comments of the authors and not necessarily the considered views of ShareSoc. The writers may hold shares in the companies mentioned. You can add your own comments on the blog posts, but note that ShareSoc reserves the right to remove or edit comments where they are inappropriate or defamatory.

The latest initiative in the ShareSoc campaign to improve shareholder rights is a video. In it I explain why shareholder democracy is important and how it has been totally undermined by the nominee system now in general use. Instead of you acquiring the rights of an owner of the business when you buy shares, those rights have been diverted and purloined by the nominee operator or stockbroker. This is simply wrong!

That is why ShareSoc has been campaigning for change under the slogan “guaranteed votes for all shareholders”. We think your rights should be restored by ensuring all investors are on the share register of a company.

The video is less than 3 minutes long and can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REu23z49JjQ&feature=youtu.be
