Dividend Reinvestment Plan
Lloyds Banking Group plc (the Company) has re-launched its dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP).
What is the DRIP?
The DRIP is a low cost way to use your dividend payments to purchase additional shares in the Company, enabling you to increase your shareholding in a convenient and cost-effective manner.
The DRIP is operated by Equiniti Financial Services Limited (EFSL). Rather than receiving a dividend cheque or having a bank account credited with a cash dividend payment, ESFL will use the dividends payable to DRIP participants to purchase shares on their behalf in the market, under a special low-cost dealing arrangement.
The fees and charges are located in the DRIP Terms & Conditions.
Joining the DRIP
Any shareholder wishing to join the DRIP should contact EFSL for an application form, using the contact details provided below.
Leaving the DRIP
Any shareholder who is a participant in the DRIP and who wishes to withdraw from the plan should contact EFSL for a revocation form, using the contact details provided below.
