Hi y’all, :cowboy_hat_face:

Harriet Cooke from The Sun is working on a story around share perks and is interested to speak with any individuals who are M&S shareholders.

Feel free to DM her or I can get you in touch with her directly.

I’m a (very very minor) shareholder of M&S, but I wouldn’t be comfortable talking to The Sun. Anyone with any link to Liverpool will know why…

Wouldn’t want to associate myself with anything to do with The Sun.

I thought you didn’t get shareholder perks if purchased through FT?

Does the exclusion of perks apply to ALL companies on freetrade? Or just m&s and some other companies

In particular I’m looking at Mitchell& butler

Is the article saying we can now use Freetrade for perks? Confused.

Shareholder perks would be a good avenue for Freetrade to go down, it works really well for companies on Crowdcube!

Ah, as an early investor in bd, I have noticed a large number of new investors relying and investing purely on perks!

Good for the businesses, not the smartest from investment points of view

What an absolutely horrific website The Sun has.

100% agree with you. It feels like trivialising investment, focusing on ’I got some cool socks, a discount or I own part of the business” than on understanding the business, financials, risk etc.

Hey y’all! You can see an update on shareholder perks here :slight_smile: Shareholder perks
