UK: ONS share ownership survey published

The Office for National Statistics has published the latest edition of its UK quoted company share ownership report: see here (pdf). This provides estimates of ordinary shares holdings in quoted companies in the UK by sector of beneficial ownership. It reports, amongst other things, that 'rest of the world' ownership now stands at over half of the value of the UK stock market at the end of 2012. It is also noted that shares are increasingly held in multiple-ownership pooled accounts, where the beneficial owner is unknown.
