You will hopefully have seen our post on Wednesday announcing the publication of the Prospectus and website for our Conviction Life Sciences Company IPO.

Many of you have been kind enough to contact us to express interest and ask if the company will be available with your specific stockbroker.

On that point - we are now in the process of getting the various investment platform companies and stockbrokers set up to make the company as widely available as possible.

To help us in that endeavour, if you are interested in investing, we would be extremely grateful if you might be willing to take a moment to fill in a online survey to let us know your level of interest and where your investment funds sit.

As a reminder, this could be in pension, ISA or general investment & trading accounts - it’s entirely up to you.

The results of this survey will help us ensure that as many of the investment platforms and stockbroking firms as possible will do the admin' required to make the company available to you for investment.

Please be assured that any information you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence. We will not pass any of your personal details on to the investment platforms.

We have designed the survey to be incredibly easy to use and to ask as few questions as possible. It should take no longer than one or two minutes for you to complete.

Take the Survey Now

We will update you further next week as things develop.
