Dividend Reinvestment & Stock Purchase Plans
A Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) is offered by a public company to allow its shareholders to reinvest all or a portion of their cash dividends into additional shares.
A Direct Stock Purchase Plan (DSPP) provides an investor the opportunity to purchase shares of a public company without being a current shareholder. It also offers investors the ability to reinvest cash dividends into additional shares.
Both plans are excellent vehicles for increasing investment value.
We’ll Tailor Your Shareholder Plan
With our transfer agent sponsored DRIP and DSPP, companies do not register the plan since shares are purchased on the open market. We can also administer your company registered plan. With the majority fees paid by the shareholder, company expenses are limited. Ask your Account Manager how we can customize your program.
Advantages For Shareholders
With our plans, you can count on us to provide:
- Dollar Cost Averaging
- Purchase of Whole and Fractional Shares
- Book Position
- Broker Commission
- Sale of Shares
