How it works

1

The issuer engages an SEC registered transfer agent in the CustodyWare community to custody investors’ shareholdings.

2

The electronic assets remain the property of the investor, and the investor has complete control of movement, however, appointing a transfer agent enables safe and transparent custodianship of the assets.

3

Utilizing a transfer agent sets up an issuer’s securities for increased liquidity potential as such securities can be moved from custody to “street-name” for secondary trading on an SEC-regulated ATS.

4

On instruction from an investor, transfer agents can execute transfers and releases to secondary trading.

5

CustodyWare-powered transfer agents can maintain post-offering custody, up-to-date shareholder listings, reports, distributions, proxy information, etc with the cap table management software.
