Bye bye .... AZN, BLT, RSA, ULVR, REL, FGP

Seems that (for JC and Arb at least) the inclusion of ULVR in that list is the most puzzling. I think I can offer a reason (though not a justification). I think the clue was in the [more]

Re: My Apr HYP(ISA) Top Up

Re: old HBOS holdings

From my records:
