You can choose how you wish to receive shareholder communications from City of London Investment Group PLC in the future.

Most of our shareholders choose to receive our Annual Reports and Notices of Meetings electronically. This has several advantages for the Company and its shareholders. It increases the speed of communication, saves you time and reduces print and distribution costs and our impact on the environment in line with our obligations to reduce carbon emissions.

Please note that if you consent to website publication you will continue to be notified in writing and through the release of an announcement on the London Stock Exchange each time the Company places a statutory communication on the website. Annual Reports, Interim Reports and other documents which are required to be sent to shareholders are published on our website: Reports. If you consent to electronic communications, the website will be the way in which you access all future shareholder information.

Please note that you still have the right to request hard copies of shareholder information at no charge.

You have the following three options in which you can receive communication from the Company:
Option 1: If you would like to receive notifications by email, you can register your email address via the Share Portal: signalshares.com
Option 2: If you would like to receive shareholder information in a hard copy format, you can register your request via the Share Portal: signalshares.com or contact Link Asset Services using the information provided below.
Option 3: If you would like to receive shareholder information by means of a website, there is nothing more you need to do. You will be notified by post when shareholder information has been placed on the website.

Please note that if you hold your shares corporately in a CREST account, you are not able to use the Share Portal to inform us of your preferred method of communication and should instead contact Link Asset Services using the information provided below. If we do not receive a reply from you by 31 December 2020, you will be deemed to have consented to website publication of shareholder information and you will not receive hard copies of shareholder information in the post.

The Company reserves the right to send hard copy documents to shareholders where for example, overseas securities laws do not permit electronic communications or other circumstances where the Company considers that electronic delivery may not be appropriate.
