2021 Annual General Meeting

The AGM is currently scheduled to be held at our London head office at 8 Finsbury Circus, London EC2M 7AZ, on Thursday 6 May 2021 at 2:00pm.

The formal notice of the AGM is set out in our Notice of Meeting on pages 4 to 6 and contains the particulars of the resolutions on which you are invited to vote.

In February, the Government published its "COVID-19 Response – Spring 2021" which sets out the roadmap to ease restrictions across England.  In light of these restrictions, the board's current intention is to hold the AGM at the company's head office with a limited number of company representatives attending in person to ensure that a valid meeting is held. Other shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person while restrictions precluding physical attendance remain in force. It is, therefore, important that you do not attend the AGM in person while such restrictions remain in place.

Voting

The board recognises the importance of the AGM to shareholders and is keen to ensure that you are able to engage with the business of the meeting.  We strongly encourage you to exercise your right to vote by submitting a proxy appointment and appointing the Chair of the AGM as your proxy and giving your instructions on how you wish the Chair to vote on the proposed resolutions.  To ensure that your vote counts, you should only appoint the Chair of the AGM to act as your proxy.

Proxy Form

Details of how to appoint a proxy are set out in the notes to the notice of AGM. If you do require a copy of the proxy form this can be downloaded here.  To be valid, your proxy appointment form or instruction must be received at the address specified in the notes by no later than 2:00pm on Tuesday 4 May 2021.

Q & A

We would strongly encourage shareholders to submit any questions on the business of the AGM in advance by sending them to CompanySecretariat@rathbones.com.  The company will respond before the proxy appointment deadline to those questions received by the close of business on Wednesday 28 April 2021. Shareholders are also encouraged to check the company's website where answers to questions submitted in advanced of the meeting will be posted.

AGM Webcast

Shareholders will also be able to listen in to (but not to speak at) the proceedings on the day via a live webcast. Shareholders will be able to access the webcast on the day of the AGM by following the weblink: https://www.investis-live.com/rathbone-brothers/605332bd49aa2a0e00777e5c/vnec at the time of the meeting.
