I am trying to track down the registrars for Pearson, the education company, and the builders Barratt Developments. Can you point me in the right direction?

Mr W.W., Dublin

Registrars are the key people for shareholders looking to get in touch with a company whose shares they hold – whether it is about changes of address, missing dividends, or lost documents.

There are a few companies in this business and the two you are looking for are among the biggest.

Pearson’s registrars are a company called Equiniti. There are based in England, like the company.

The full address is: Equiniti, Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex BN99 6DA, England.

You can also call them on 0044 121 4157062, or if you have poor hearing and want a textphone service, 0044 121 4157028, though you will need compatible textphone equipment for calls to this latter number. Phone lines are open between 8:30am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, their website says.

For Barratt, the company you need to contact is called Capita. They are at: Capita Asset Services, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4TU, England. Again, you can phone them on 0044 208 6393399 between 9am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday.

In both cases, I would put the name of the the company whose shares you are want to talk about prominently at the top of your letter, as both companies are registrars to many companies.
