List of perks for shareholders in top UK companies

Premier Asset Management and Millfield have teamed up to publish the Shareholder Perks Guide 2002.

The free guide, which is aimed at potential and existing investors in equities, details the special offers and privileges available to shareholders of 76 of the 350 largest companies listed in the UK stockmarket.

It says many companies offer special deals to their shareholders, particularly in the general retail, leisure, entertainment and hotel sectors, but the information can be difficult for investors to access.

For example, Airtours offers its UK shareholders a 10 per cent discount on all Airtours holidays. British Airways offers one flight and one holiday coupon per year to each shareholder with more than 2000 ordinary shares, which can be used by the holder and up to three travelling companions.

Hilton Hotels gives a 15 per cent discount on all room tariffs, food and drinks while Avis offers discounted car rentals for anyone holding at least 350 shares bought in a block.

Premier Asset Management joint managing director Jonathan Fry says: “The guide has proved to be very popular with private investors over the years. We have had many people in the past asking for more information and advice on their personal financial planning needs after reading the guide. We are therefore delighted to now offer this service using Millfield&#39s expertise in financial planning advice.”
