eSignatureGuarantee is a unique, patent pending online platform, which allows stockholders to obtain a Signature Guarantee for the transfer of securities.
A signature guarantee verifies the signature of a person making a request to transfer physical certificates of financial instruments such as securities like stocks. It is a form of authentication provided by financial institutions to prevent fraud, speed the legal transfer of securities, and protect transfer agents from the legal consequences of a fraudulent signature. Signature guarantees can only be provided by members of official securities guarantee programs like Medallion. Learn more.
