Companies must keep a record of all the shares they’ve issued. This record is known as a share register or shareholder register. Share registry providers such as Automic work on behalf of companies to manage their list of shareholders and provide on-going management of changes to shareholder personal details and their holdings.
Shareholders will typically have a relationship with both the broker and the share registry. Share registry providers such as Automic are the main point of contact for shareholders who want to enquire about their holdings. They also manage important functions such as payment of dividends, shareholder voting and distribution of company reports.
Employee share option plans are also tracked by registries.
