Change of registrar
Balfour Beatty is in the process of changing share registrar from Link Group to Equiniti Group (EQ). Over the next few weeks, you will receive further information – there is nothing you need to do just now, and you should continue to contact Link Group using your current details. Once migrated, EQ will send you relevant details to ensure you can access your share records.
We are aiming to transfer over to EQ by early June 2022. Please visit this page for regular updates and timings.
