Updated arrangements for the 2020 Annual General Meeting (the Meeting)


In the light of recent changes to UK Government guidance and relevant legislation, the Company announces that the Meeting convened to be held on 16 October 2020 will now be held as a closed meeting. The Company will arrange the quorum. In the interests of safety, regrettably other shareholders will not be permitted to attend the Meeting. Shareholders are encouraged to vote by appointing the chair of the Meeting as their proxy to vote on their behalf.

Any shareholder who had been intending to come to the Meeting and ask a question, may instead email that question to corporate@ashmoregroup.com at any time between now and the date of the Meeting.

Ashmore remains fully committed to holding future Annual General Meetings as live meetings and will welcome shareholders to attend in person as soon as it is appropriate.


On 16 September the Company announced that the Meeting would be held at 61 Aldwych, London WC2B 4AE at 12.00 noon on Friday 16 October 2020, but that it would continue to monitor developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and that shareholders should check the Company's website and announcements for any updates concerning the arrangements for the Meeting.

The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 (the Act) was passed into law in June 2020, and provides flexibility for companies to hold shareholder meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic as 'closed meetings'. However, the Act applied only to meetings held on or before 30 September 2020. This period has now been extended and applies to meetings held prior to 31 December 2020.
