NatWest retail share offer

The government recently announced their intention to sell a portion of their shareholding in NatWest, creating a retail share offer.


This guide covers:

  • Why the NatWest retail share offer is happening
  • When the offer may be available
  • How you could take advantage.

What is the opportunity?

The NatWest retail share offer gives individual investors a chance to purchase shares direct from a company, or from the government.

Why is this happening?

In the 2024 UK budget, the chancellor announced that the government intends to sell part of its shareholding in NatWest direct to retail investors.

The proposed NatWest share offer could include a discounted share price, but this is yet to be confirmed.

When will it be available?

The NatWest retail share offer could be available as early as summer 2024, subject to market conditions. We expect a date to be announced soon.

The offer is likely to be open for a limited period, and there may be only a short amount of notice before it is made available.

How to get involved.

The chancellor is yet to announce full details of the offer, including who can participate, how many shares they can buy and what the price will be.
