Equiniti is the UK’s leading share registration business and an emerging player in the broader financial services BPO market.
The company’s portfolio spans five main service lines: registration services and employee share plan administration (the business holds UK leadership in both); retail investor services (including the well-known ‘Shareview’ online share dealing service); and HR services incorporating flexible benefits and pensions administration.
Employing 1,700 staff, the business has an enviable blue chip corporate client base of 700 companies (including 55% of the FTSE 100 and 41% of the FTSE 250) and services some 24 million investor and shareholder accounts. Advent’s acquisition marks a step-change in Equiniti's development, accelerating its transition into a more broadly-based financial services BPO provider. Our strategy is two-fold, driving growth through the continued roll-out of complementary services and pursuing selected domestic and international expansion opportunities.
Equiniti complies with the Walker Working Group’s disclosure guidelines applicable to certain UK companies.
