Assisting with cross border listings

Co-Agent Services

A Co-Agent partners with a primary agent in another country to facilitate stock transfers primarily in the United States. Co-Agents accept and transfer certificates or book entry shares and work closely to provide daily activity records to the primary transfer agent.

Dual-Listing Transfer Agent Services 

A dual-listed transfer agent partners with a transfer agent in another country to enable trading of equity shares on multiple markets. Issuers may want multiple listings to enhance share liquidity and increase its public profile for investors and employees. This enables issuers to diversify capital-raising activities, rather than relying only on the domestic market. A Dual Agent manages a full listing of security holder records.
