Argus Vickers, the London-based company, produces The Owners service. The Owners service contains comprehensive and timely ownership data on small-cap to mid-cap UK stocks.
The reporting requirements in the UK differ from those in the US. In the UK, plcs report the names of their shareholders on their share registers as opposed to the US where portfolio managers report their stock holdings on their N30D and 13F filings.
The UK system of reporting is complicated by the fact that the registers of the various plcs show their holdings, in most cases, in nominee names. The Owners service collects the registers of approximately 2200 plcs every 12-16 weeks and, by utilizing its unique nominee database, identifies, where possible, actual share ownership. Because The Owners service is updated every 12-16 weeks, and covers between 85-95% of the issued share capital, it supplies the most current comprehensive UK ownership list available.
