Engaging a transfer agent is mandated by the SEC for issuers conducting S-1 registrations or securities offerings under Regulation A+, unless 12(g) exempt.

Efficient transfer agent operations are critical to the successful completion of secondary trades. Reg D and Reg CF issuers will be looking to transfer agents who offer a streamlined solution.

Immutable proof of the holder’s identity is maintained by CustodyWare while the actual identity documentation is securely stored by the transfer agent in a regulatory compliant storage media pursuant to SEC Regulation S-P.

How it works


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


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 management of the assets.


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


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


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