A stock transfer agent is a company, hired by the issuer, to manage the change in ownership on shares and maintains a register of ownership. This includes cancelling the name and certificate of the shareholder who sold the shares of stock, and substituting the new owner's name on the official master shareholder listing.
To provide some more details, the transfer agent has three major roles:
The transfer agent requires a shareholder to obtain a medallion signature guarantee to prevent fraud. By doing so, the transfer agent reduces its potential liability.
It is important to note that the medallion signature guarantee should not be confused with a notary public. The big difference is in the liability. The organization that guarantees the authenticity of the signature is liable for the financial value of the transaction.
