LONDON, September 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Computershare is delighted to announce that the 2008 Capital Analytics Survey of Registrars places us at No.1 for Overall Satisfaction with Registrar.
Computershare, an Australian listed company with a uniquely global footprint, arrived in the UK 10 years ago via its acquisition of RBS Registrars. Since that time, we have invested significantly in the business, both in terms of people and technology.
Over the last three years, we have undertaken a radical restructuring and overhaul of our UK business, designed to improve the service we deliver to our clients and their shareholders, as Chris Morris, Executive Chairman and Managing Director for the EMEA region comments:
'We've literally stripped the business back to basics and checked everything from the ground up. It is rewarding to see that this overhaul is now 'paying dividends' and that our clients recognise the effort we have put in. Of course, there are still things we're planning to improve - and clients will continue to see the benefits of our changes over the coming years.'
The 2008 survey results put Computershare in top spot for many categories, including Willingness to Recommend Registrar, Account Management, Dividend Payments and Internet Services.
Computershare has also enjoyed a successful year in its share plan business, adding to its awards haul with the 'Best Use of Technology' accolade at the Global Equity Awards for its work with Royal Dutch Shell Plc; and taking both the 'Best Use of Technology' and 'Best New Share Plan' titles with BHP Billiton Plc at the ifsProshare ceremony.
