DEPOSITARY BANK REVIEW AND SELECTION PROCESS

Our core business is ensuring that our DR-issuer clients obtain best-practice financial terms and contractual conditions when negotiating with the Depositary Banks. For an overview of our philosophy and approach, click here.

DIVIDEND AND SERVICE FEE LEVELS

All of the recognized DR exchanges allow issuers to charge their investors dividend and service fees. Issuers continue to debate “should we assess fees?” and if so, “what is the acceptable fee level?” Capital Analytics has helped many of our clients adopt a balanced approach to dividend fee levels through a careful analysis of market practice, implementation by regional and sector peer group, and market participant feedback.

UK REGISTRAR BENCHMARKING SURVEY

Since 2005 Capital Analytics has conducted an annual survey to identify how UK companies view the level and quality of the services they and their shareholders receive from their registrar. The focus of the survey is on the current and topical issues and covers a wide-range of satisfaction metrics for both issuers and their shareholders. The survey has become an industry standard by which UK Registrars’ services are measured by their clients.
