Interactive Investor

Latest updates

  • The Share Centre is combining with interactive investor (ii) for an even better investment service and that means The Share Centre service is closing later this year.
  • We need your agreement to move your Wellesley Property Bonds and any money left in your dedicated Share and/or ISA account with The Share Centre to the ii platform. 
  • Please complete and return the form we posted to you by 20 October 2021 to let us know that you do agree. If we do not hear from you by then we may need to go ahead and move you to the ii platform.  

Why should I agree to the move?

Wellesley Finance Limited entered into a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) in October 2020. If you need a reminder of the details and of what the CVA means for your Wellesley Property Bonds, please visit Wellesley’s investor support website.

Under the terms of the CVA, Wellesley Property Bond holders are receiving capital repayments in stages. The final repayment is due to be paid into your account in early January 2022, after The Share Centre service will have closed.

This means agreeing to the move is a practical step you need to take to make sure your final repayment reaches you. As soon as you receive your repayment into your ii account you can withdraw your money if you wish and your account will be closed.

Does any money in my account have to move with my bonds?

No. You can withdraw it before the move if you wish. You can arrange a withdrawal through your account online. 

The option to request a transfer to another platform or broker ahead of the move is no longer open to you. When we wrote to you originally about moving to ii we explained that, as transfers can take some time to complete, you would need to initiate one by 6 September 2021. You can, of course, still arrange a transfer from ii after the move. Neither The Share Centre nor ii apply an exit charge.

Will I have to pay charges to ii?

After your move and before your final capital repayment is made, you will not pay any charges to ii, as long as you hold only Wellesley Property Bonds in your account.

After your final capital repayment is made, you will only pay charges to ii if you choose to stay on and make use of ii’s platform service on an ongoing basis.

If you do stay on, the charges you pay will depend on the service plan you choose. The Investor Plan is ii’s most popular. Read ii’s Rates and charges for the details. 

What if I’ve already got an account with ii?

We still need to move your dedicated Wellesley accounts from The Share Centre to the ii platform for your final capital repayment to be made. 

You will continue paying charges as normal for your existing ii account and will not pay anything extra as a result of your Wellesley accounts moving from The Share Centre.
