How to hold Rothschild & Co shares

Click on the drop-downs below to find out about holding shares in Bearer form, administered registered form or pure registered form.

In bearer form

Your shares are held by your bank or financial institution only, so your ownership is not registered in Rothschild & Co' books. This is the most common way of holding shares.

In administered registered form

Your shares are held by your bank or financial institution, which manages them, but are also registered in the Company's books. As we know your identity, we can give you a more personalised service. .

In pure registered form

Your shares are held by Société Générale Securities Services, our register's manager. This means your shares and personal information are registered in your name, so you will automatically receive Group information and an invitation to the Annual General Meeting. You will not be charged for custodian fees.

Payment method

Payments in cash will be made either by bank transfer or by cheque on the settlement day. We recommend that you transmit your bank details to Société Générale so that payments can be made directly to your bank account.

Tax follow-up

A single printed tax form relative to dividend payments and, if applicable, disposals over the course of the year, will be sent to you the following February. The calculation of capital gains or losses on disposals of shares is an additional procedure which can be carried out at the request of shareholders who are then billed for the service.

Rothschild & Co shares as part of a share savings scheme

If you wish to hold your shares as part of a share saving scheme, you may classify them as pure registered shares.

Rothschild & Co shares can be acquired for placement in a share saving scheme or a request can be made to have them classified as pure registered Rothschild & Co shares as part of a share saving scheme opened with your financial intermediary.

However, purchase and sale orders must obligatorily be made via the financial intermediary in charge of managing your share saving scheme and the shares will be subject to custodian and management fees withdrawn from your account by the latter. It is important to make sure that this type of registration does not generate additional fees charged by intermediaries in connection with their own management procedures.
