Email terms


The following terms and conditions outline the basis upon which we communicate by email. By communicating with us by email, you are taken to have accepted these terms and conditions. If you wish to object to any of these terms and conditions, you should not email us, and speak to your usual contact or the relevant office switchboard as noted on our website.

The issuing entity for each email is as noted on the relevant email footer (Issuing Entity). By ‘we and ‘us’ we mean the relevant Issuing Entity. By ‘Schroder Group’ we mean all or any direct and indirect subsidiary of Schroders plc (as the context indicates).

We amend these terms and conditions from time to time. Every time you communicate with us by email, please check this page for the latest version.

Terms and conditions which apply to all countries

You must not change or separate any sections of attachments or parts of such emails without prior agreement by us.
  5. Market data: Where FTSE International Limited (“FTSE”) data is used, “FTSE” is a trade mark of the London Stock Exchange Group of companies and is used by FTSE International Limited under licence. All rights in the FTSE indices vest in FTSE and/or its licensors. Neither FTSE nor its licensors accept any liability for any errors or omissions in the FTSE indices or underlying data. No further distribution of FTSE data is permitted without FTSE’s express written consent.

Accordingly, you must not rely upon it, and should obtain specific professional advice before acting.
