Have You Kept Track Of Your Old Bank Accounts And Investments?

One subject which is never very far from the lips of the regulators in the UK is the array of bank accounts and investments which have remained untouched for years, obviously forgotten about and left to grow and grow. To say the figures involved are large is an under statement, we are taking literally hundreds of millions (if not billions) of pounds of unclaimed assets.

As we continue down the road to a probable recession in the UK there are literally millions of people out there who do could do with an extra lump sum, money which they may have forgotten about, been left in a will or just plain lost track of. If you believe that you may have lost track of a bank account, maybe you have not told the bank you moved, or you suddenly remember that you did not accept a share takeover over, you should go back over your paperwork and see what information you still have.

A few simple checks, a little but of history about the investment and you could literally see yourself having hundreds if not thousands of pounds returned to you, the rightful owner. A word of warning, with the government recently suggesting that asset untouched for a set period should become assets of the state, you should act sooner rather than later, just in case this legalised theft is actually brought onto the statute book!
