“Considering the varied nature and potential opportunities of each of the business segments and the need for a focused approach to unlock these opportunities, the Board of Directors of the company has decided that the company should undertake a comprehensive review of the existing corporate structure,” the firm told shareholders. “This will encompass an evaluation of full range of options and alternatives, including demerger(s), subsidiarisation(s), strategic partnerships etc.”

The company intends to appoint advisors or consultants to assist the board in evaluating its options. The strategic objectives outlined for undertaking such an exercise are:

  • Streamlining of the business structure to enhance market positions and deliver long-term growth
  • Attracting the right talent and providing enhanced growth opportunities to existing talent in line with a sharper strategic focus on each business segment under separate entities
  • Tailored capital structure and capital allocation policies based on business-specific dynamics
  • Sharper, well-defined corporate positioning coupled with value unlocking for all stakeholders
  • Distinct investment profiles to attract deeper and broader investor bases  
  • Accelerating sustainability initiatives and expediting ESG practices

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
