Persimmon pay: UKSA saw it coming

UKSA identified the Persimmon LTIP as outrageous when it was first approved in 2012. This is more than a single-company story. It also shows what groups of individual shareholders could contribute to corporate governance were they not emasculated by the erosion of their rights in favour of conflicted institutional and corporate interests. Join UKSA to support the campaign against egregious LTIPs.

Tata Steel pensions scandal brewing – advice system still open to corruption

As reported in today’s Financial Times (2 December 2017) an advice scandal is brewing around the Tata Steel pension fund. Some advice firms have capitalised on pensioners’ ignorance by advising transfer into high risk funds with transparently unsuitable investment profiles, undeclared fees and undeclared conflicts of interest.

Dennis Grainger update on Northern Rock Small Shareholder Compensation Fight

I wanted to give you a brief update as to how the campaign for compensation is going (yes, it still is going!).

As some of you will know I have been on the committee and involved in the fight since the shares were taken from us in March 2008, and acted as the lead-plaintiff for us in the Court hearings, one at the Judicial Review, one at the Appeal Court (both disappointing to say the least) and, of course - the most disappointing of all - the rejection of our case as ‘inadmissible’ by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

John Hunter, our Chairman, is enormously appreciative of the result of the informal donations appeal

John reports that the informal donations appeal has so far yielded over £1,500. Our thanks to you all. Substantial individual donations are welcome, of course, but equal leverage comes from small amounts spread among large numbers of members. Donations can still be made by credit card or PayPal by clicking on this link.

Just 100 extra members appreciative of what UKSA does, contributing £25 each, would provide another… you do the maths
