This paper presents the results and findings of the Financial Narrative Summarisation Shared Task on summarising UK annual reports. The shared task was organised as part of the Financial Narrative Processing 2021 Workshop (FNP 2021 Workshop). The shared task included one main task which is the use of either abstractive or extractive automatic summarisers to summarise long documents in terms of UK financial annual reports. This shared task is the second to target financial documents. The data for the shared task was created and collected from publicly available UK annual reports published by firms listed on the London Stock Exchange. A total number of 10 systems from 5 different teams participated in the shared task. In addition, we had two baseline and two topline summarisers to help evaluate the results of the participating teams and compare them to the state-of-the-art systems.
