Hot off the presses, as promised, our big corporate actions rundown - with some Affleck for good measure.
I was wondering if this was in the App, I have some SSE shares and had the opportunity to vote on a demerger the other day. My shares are in HL and they sent a message with a vote button in it. Are you doing something similar?
At launch we won’t be offering this - anyone wanting to partake in a voluntary corporate action will have to contact us and we’ll do it manually. However we intend to introduce this, we’re just prioritising the core features at the moment so we can get the app in your hands quicker!
It’s quite a rare event anyway, probably best to concentrate on core everyday stuff first
