LOST/DESTROYED SHARE CERTIFICATES
As a shareholder, you may hold shares in the Blue Planet Investment Trusts in a nominee account, such as with your broker. Otherwise, you will hold your shares in your own name. If shares are held in your own name, a share certificate is issued to you which you must keep carefully, as it is proof of ownership and required to transact in the shares.
Capita advises never to sell, transfer or deposit stock without a share certificate; to do so will only result in the rejection of such requests. Capita levies a charge to issue replacement share certificates; this charge is paid by the shareholder directly to Capita, and the Blue Planet Investment Trusts do not receive any of the fee.
The cost for a replacement share certificate depends on the value of the shares which it represents. See this link to Capita's own website for further information:
Capita will normally issue a new share certificate within ten working days from the time it receives the correctly completed forms and fees from the shareholder.
