Future Government flotations should align investment limits with investors' ISA allocations -- Wealth Management Association and Peel Hunt survey.
The private investor’s experience of the Royal Mail flotation last month offers lessons for the forthcoming sales of more Government assets, a survey of the UK’s wealth managers reveals today. Any possible cut-off for private investors, beyond which they receive no shares, should be stipulated in advance and should reflect the annual stocks-and-shares ISA limit for private investors, the survey by the Wealth Management Association and Peel Hunt shows. Other key findings include: although the flotation process generally went well and public demand for the issue was large, there was frustration that the overall allocation for private investors was not higher; different classes of retail investors (discretionary, advisory and execution-only) were treated differently, so that many retail clients such as trusts and charities were not provided allocations; wealth management firms had to make a trade off between helping to ensure the widest participation and the commercial reality of the cost and time of doing so.
