First Class Personalized Service
Whether it is a stock transfer, proxy, inquiry or something else, Colonial provides personalized and professional customer service for you and your shareholders every time. There is no need to wait tirelessly for a response. Our live representatives provide support on an individual basis with immediate and direct responses via telephone and email. Further, we are always improving our processes and systems by listening to the feedback of our clients through surveys, online feedback, and random customer service sampling.
Cost Saving Efficiencies
Since Colonial is not burdened with significant legacy costs and overhead, we are able to deliver cost saving efficiencies to both you and your shareholders. Our commitment to technology, paper elimination efforts, flexible pricing plans, and issuer education on reducing costs will leave you assured that you are receiving all of the possible cost saving benefits and more.
Increased Networking Opportunities
In addition to working in the transfer agent business, members of our team have worked in the brokerage, market making, and investment banking industries. You can benefit from our increased industry insight and networking opportunities with hundreds of industry contacts: attorneys, accountants, investment bankers, lenders, and brokers.
With the ability to access your account online, you can view shareholder reports in real‐time with the option to sort, search, export, and update data. Additionally, you can perform shareholder address updates, issuance requests, and manage your proxy campaign from start to finish. Shareholders, who sign up for internet account access, are able to view holdings and make updates to their account.
Fast Turnaround Times
For several years, the SEC and other regulators have required routine stock transfers to be processed within three business days. At Colonial, we went a step further by creating a one business day turnaround policy to ensure that our customers’ investments weren’t negatively affected by the processing timelines allotted by the SEC. It is our goal and commitment to provide immediate turnaround on all requests, whether it is a stock transfer, issuance, or something else.
One Business Day Setup
We are able to transition and setup your company in a timely manner so that you don’t see any interruptions in your securities processing or trading. Our experts will import your shareholder data into our systems within one business day of receipt and guide you through each step of the setup process.
