Rathbones Group Plc - 2024 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 9 May 2024 at 11:00am. 

This year, the board has also made arrangements to enable members to attend and participate in the meeting electronically should they wish to do so. Details of how to register to attend electronically can be found in the Notes to the Notice on page 18.

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. Further information on each of the resolutions can be found in the explanatory notes on pages 7 to 11.

Appointing a proxy

If you are unable to come along to 8 Finsbury Circus or attend the AGM online, you can still be represented at the meeting by appointing a proxy to attend on your behalf and by giving instructions on how you wish your proxy to vote on the resolutions.

We would encourage you to appoint the Chair of the AGM as your proxy whether or not you propose to attend. This will ensure that your vote is counted even if you are (or any other proxy you might otherwise appoint is) unable to attend for any reason on the day. If you appoint the Chair as your proxy, the Chair will vote in accordance with your instructions. If the Chair is given discretion as to how to vote, he or she will vote in favour of each of the resolutions set out in the notice. Appointing the Chair of the AGM as your proxy will not prevent you from attending and voting in person if you wish to do so. All proposed resolutions will be put to a vote on a poll once again this year.

Full details of how to appoint a proxy can be found in the Notes on page 16 of the Notice of Meeting. To be valid, your proxy appointment must be received by the company’s Registrars, Equiniti, by no later than 11:00am on Tuesday 7 May 2024.

How to ask questions

The board is keen to hear from shareholders. Shareholders, their appointed proxies, or corporate representatives who attend the AGM, whether at the physical venue or online, can ask questions on the business of the meeting on the day. All shareholders can also submit questions in advance of the AGM by sending them to CompanySecretariat@rathbones.com. To ensure that a response is received before the proxy appointment deadline, shareholders should submit their questions by 6:30pm on Wednesday 1 May 2024. We will publish the questions and our response on our website.
