Q:

What is stock transfer agent and how do I contact them?

A:

A transfer agent and registrar for a publicly held company keeps records of every outstanding stock certificate and the name of the person to whom it is registered. When stock changes hands, the transfer agent updates the record of ownership of the stock. The registrar reconciles all transfer records and makes sure that the number of shares debited is equal to the number of shares credited. Jernigan Capital’s transfer agent is American Stock Transfer and Trust Co. The transfer agent does not maintain records of shares bought and sold through brokerage accounts and held in 'street name'. Those records are maintained by the specific brokerages through whom shares are bought and sold.
