About us

Reclaim Fund Ltd (RFL) is the operator of the UK Dormant Assets Scheme. Authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), RFL makes it possible for money in dormant financial assets to help social and environmental initiatives across the UK.

RFL is owned by Her Majesty’s Treasury’s (HM Treasury), and RFL is accountable to government as a public body.

UK Government Investments Limited (UKGI) manages HM Treasury’s shareholding in RFL. RFL is legally incorporated with its own legal identity, acting at arm’s length from the government and governed by a separate Board of Directors.

Prior to March 2021, RFL was a wholly owned subsidiary of The Co-operative Group via Angel Square Investments Limited.

Our history

The Co-operative Group was approached by HM Treasury in late 2009 to support government and industry efforts to establish a reclaim fund that would enable dormant account monies to be used for good causes. Reclaim Fund Ltd was incorporated on 13 August 2010 and commenced operations on 28 March 2011 to put into effect the Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Act 2008.

In late 2019, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) conducted a review of RFL and classified it to the central government subsector. This decision made RFL a public body, applicable retrospectively from its establishment in 2010.

Due to RFL’s new status as a public body, in March 2021, the shareholding previously held by Angel Square Investments Limited (formerly known as Co-operative Banking Group Limited) was transferred to Her Majesty’s Treasury’s (HM Treasury)..
