Fast (DTC) Transfer Agent
EST is a part of Depository Trust Company (DTC) Fast Automated Securities Transfer system (FAST). This enables us to electronically transfer free trading securities via Cede & Co. (DTC’s nominee name) to participating broker/dealers, rather than process paper certificates.
Do you want to become FAST DTC eligible? Please contact us to discuss the direct benefits for you and your shareholders.
The DWAC and DRS processes offer a number of benefits to investors. These are some of the benefits that your Company may enjoy while participating in these programs:
• Significantly reduce the time required to deposit stock certificates into a brokerage account.
• Eliminate printing of stock certificates, getting them lost in transit and associated replacement fees.
• Eliminate lengthy broker physical certificate deposits and associated processing fees.
• Eliminate courier shipments and associated fees.
• Increase funding opportunities from institutional investors, lenders, and investment bankers
Shareholders can withdraw their stock from their brokerage accounts and request a physical stock certificate by either having the broker initiate the request through DTC or by having their broker send the shares electronically directly to the transfer agent through the DWAC system.
