Peter Hargreaves sells 300m of Hargreaves Lansdown shares

By Sean Farrell

Date: Wednesday 17 Feb 2021

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Peter Hargreaves has sold 300m of shares in Hargreaves Lansdown, leaving him owning less than 20% of the company he co-founded 30 years ago.
Hargreaves said he had sold 19,543,974 of the investment platform's shares at 15.35 each to institutional investors. After the offering the self-made billionaire owns 19.8% of the FTSE 100 group's shares.

Before the placing Hargreaves owned about 24% of the company he started from a spare bedroom in Bristol in 1981. Hargreaves Lansdown shares fell 7.1% to 15.35 at 08:42 GMT and were the biggest fallers in the FTSE 100 index.

Hargreaves has now sold almost 1bn of the company's shares in the past year after unloading 550m in early February 2020. At the time he said the sale was part of his long-term plan to diversify assets and that he would remain a substantial shareholder in Hargreaves Lansdown.

The placing was announced after the market closed on Tuesday. The shares were little changed from a year earlier before the announcement after recovering from a low of 15.58 at the market low in March.
