If you hold your shares in electronic form i.e. via a broker, we recommend you contact your broker to confirm which register your shares are held on.
If your shares are held in certificated form, they are likely to be held on the Guernsey register – if you are unsure, please check the correspondence address which appears on the share certificate(s) or contact Computershare UK in the first instance.
As Gemfields is dual listed on the JSE and AIM its share price is quoted in both South African Rand and UK Sterling. It is normal for the share price on both exchanges to be very near to each other with the different prices tracking the prevailing South African Rand/Sterling exchange rate.
