Severn Trent is a privatised water company in England, regulated by Ofwat and the Environmental Agency. It’s one of 3 water companies in England that remain on the London Stock Exchange, meaning it has public shares and operates as a Private Limited Company. However, it still shares many of the same big overseas shareholders as the rest of England’s privatised water companies. Shareholders are primarily based in New York, USA.
In 2021, the company paid out the highest CEO remunerations of all water companies. This last year, they once again had the highest CEO pay outs and the second highest dividend pay outs in the sector.
