Re: plea for help from a hands off investor!


I assume my money is protected as its less than £80k (??)

I assume that the shares are yours and are held by Selftrade in a bare trust so no matter what happens to Selftrade your shares are safe

Re: Have you decided to disclose net worth?

Nowhere on the form, does it say you have to answer all the questions, so they are all voluntary in my eyes. Its perfectly valid to leave one blank if you "dont know" or are unwilling to answer a particular question.
