Capita Registrars wins Legal & General contract

Capita is pleased to announce that it was awarded the contract to manage Legal & General’s register and share plan administration, with effect from 27 June 2011. The appointment by this FTSE 100 company further demonstrates Capita’s ability to manage both complex and large volume registers and share plans.

Capita’s appointment by Legal & General saw the transfer of multiple share plans including legacy data, and a complex register, all of which were implemented within a strict timeframe. In addition, Capita worked with the company to enhance aspects of its Share Portal functionality to encourage shareholders and participants to administer their holding online, while also streamlining shareholder payment processes. 

Charles Cryer, Chief Executive Officer, Capita Registrars, comments: “Being awarded this contract from such a well known brand is testament to our ability to successfully transfer and manage large and complex registers and employee share plans. Organisations are increasingly looking for partners who can bring a flexible and personal approach to running register and share plans services smoothly and efficiently, delivering optimal transparency and enhanced communications for shareholders and employees. We have repeatedly demonstrated that this is where our strengths lie.”
