EQ U.S., part of Equiniti Group plc and a leading provider of transfer agent and shareholder services, announced today the partnership with eSignatureGuarantee.com. This partnership brings eSignatureGuarantee.com's patent-pending online platform to shareholders, allowing them to conveniently and securely obtain the necessary signature guarantee for the transfer of securities.
Medallion signature guarantees are needed to confirm the identity of the transferee; however, they can be difficult to obtain. Many banks are moving away from offering this service and the current restrictions on business hours and contact make it challenging to secure the signature guarantee.
Seth Farbman, Co-Founder of eSignatureGuarantee.com stated, “As the financial services industry continues to embrace advances in technology, shareholders have had the most to gain from our online solution. The eSignatureGuarantee.com platform offers a unique blend of convenience and compliance that allows shareholders to obtain a signature guarantee without having to find or travel to a bank branch.”
Anne St. Martin, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at EQ U.S. commented: “We are excited to be able to find easy and convenient ways to assist shareholders with their transactions. The service from eSignatureGuarantee.com enables shareholders to electronically receive a signature guarantee stamp for their share transfer through a simple and secure platform.”
