Fund supermarket boosted by Royal Mail flotation

Have your say

Fund supermarket Hargreaves Lansdown, which has an office in Leeds, said the Royal Mail float helped it attract a record number of new investors as Britons scrambled to take part in the UK’s biggest state sell-off for decades.

The group thanked the flotation for a “seismic effect” on UK investment as it notched up 77,000 new clients in the six months to December 31 - more than the equivalent periods of the last three years combined.
