Use of Limited or Ltd[edit]

According to Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(companies) and the use of Limited or Ltd,

If the legal status is used to disambiguate, it should be abbreviated in the article title (Corp., Inc., LLC, LLP, Ltd., plc, etc.), unless company literature and logos clearly shows a preference for the unabbreviated title (CBS Corporation). Likewise there should be no comma prior to the legal status unless specified by the company literature. Jez    19:16, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

UKFI doesn't have any subsiduries[edit]

RBS, Lloyds and UKAR are not strictly subsiduries of UKFI. HM Treasury still owns these assets, UKFI merely manages them for HM Treasury.

You can see this is you read their financial reports and in particular read the framework document http://www.ukfi.co.uk/releases/UKFI_FD_20101001.pdf I've made a few changes to the start to reflect this, but haven't changed things later on. Now that it is clear that the company doesn't technically own these shares, then it is probably reasonable to refer to them as "holdings" further down to save clumsiness in speech. I'll leave it up to someone else to decide. 31.221.13.140 (talk) 09:31, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

after it issued 3.14 billion new shares[edit]

"it" could be usefully clarified. Is it the bank or UKFI or both of them? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.144.226.103 (talk) 15:54, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
