Corporate information

UKGI publishes a number of corporate reports on a regular basis. These help us remain accountable to our shareholder and inform our clients and stakeholders of our work.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives you the right to access recorded information held by public sector organisations. Anyone can request information – there are no restrictions on your age, nationality or where you live. An organisation can refuse your request if the information is sensitive or the costs are too high. As a Limited Company wholly owned by HM Treasury, UKGI is obliged to meet the Freedom of Information Act requirements set out above.

How to apply for information

UKGI publish information on the decisions we take on our website, and more information on our portfolio and investee companies can be found on their websites. It is possible that the information you seek may already be published and, before making a request, you should check whether the information you require is already published.

If you cannot find what you want, you can submit a request by letter to:

UK Government Investments Ltd
1 Victoria Street
London SW1H 0ET

Alternatively, you can email us via our Freedom of information email address: freedomofinformation@ukgi.org.uk or use the form on this page.

In making a request you need to:

  • provide your name and address for replies
  • describe as clearly as possible the information you are seeking
  • give a telephone number, in case we need to discuss your request with you

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. The ICO’s website includes more information and guidance about making a request under the Freedom of Information act.

How we will handle requests

We will provide advice and assistance wherever that would be helpful.

We will acknowledge receipt of your request.

We have a statutory obligation to reply within 20 working days.

We will tell you whether or not we hold the information requested.

We will provide the information requested unless:

  • the information is otherwise accessible to you, or
  • to extract the information would take more than three and a half working days – the cost limit under section 12 of the Act – or
  • the information is covered by another absolute exemption under the Act – e.g. disclosure would be against the law – or
  • we argue that in all the circumstances it is against the public interest to disclose it.
  • If the last judgment is complex, the Act provides for extra time to be taken and we would notify you if that is needed.

We will keep you notified of progress where appropriate, and justify any refusal to you. Requests for information related to environmental matters is likely to be dealt with under the Environmental Information Regulations; these provide very similar rights. Requests for your own personal data will be dealt with as ‘subject access requests’ under the Data Protection Act.
