We're equity experts
Transfer agents know equities – it's our job to stay on top of equity regulations and reporting requirements for each and every state and country where you and your employees do business. Brokers often outsource this service, as do companies that self-administer their plans. A transfer agent does it all for you, leveraging their specialized expertise to make sure you stay compliant and your shareholders' assets are protected.
As transfer agents, our core is serving shareholders on behalf of our issuer clients. This includes providing dedicated teams to ensure quick support for issuers and a call center staffed with licensed professionals for plan participants. It also means investing in leading-edge financial technology to make things easier for everyone.
We're not brokers (and that's a good thing)
Unlike "full-service" brokerage houses, a transfer agent will never solicit your executives and employees for brokerage or planning services. Our focus is on doing what's best for your company, and that starts with satisfied employees and shareholders.
Listening to feedback
One of the best metrics for determining a financial expert’s success is feedback from the community they serve. EQ encourages communication between all participants in the equity process so that we can better serve our client’s needs. We are proud to be the most-trusted transfer agent in the business according to Group Five’s independent survey – alongside the highest overall marks for client and shareholder satisfaction!
While full-service brokerages, discount brokers, and self-administration plans may offer a few of the same advantages, EQ checks all the right boxes: advanced technology, equity expertise, and focus where it belongs: keeping shareholders happy.
