Electronic registration of securities in the VP system is valuable for both the issuing company and its investors. For companies this means the opportunity to have an electronic share registrar who will receive data about investors every time a trade has settled. Furthermore, the entire payment settlement to the investors is automated, comprising allocation of dividends, calculation of interest, drawings and redemptions. For the investors it means a higher level of security, having the securities registered in VP and not just in a manually handled share register, as this eliminates any doubt of ownership. In addition to this, the investors appreciate the fact that their securities are visible in their online banks, making it easier to keep an overview of their investments.

Just like the registration – and the issuance process demands great coordination and expertise, so does the subsequent daily handling of the issued securities through different Corporate Actions. Experience is a necessity in ensuring an efficient execution. Besides from taking on this role, VP Issuing Agent Services can also act as a valuable team player for companies wanting to admit their shares to trading through an IPO. By being involved in the early stages of the process, VP Issuing Agent Services can contribute in making sure that different factors and steps are taken into consideration, thereby diminishing the chance of losing valuable time in the process.
VP Issuing Agent Services handle all types of Corporate Actions for the issuing company, e.g. dividend payments, different types of issues, mergers, stock splits etc. and the departments’ experienced employees ensure that everything proceeds as planned from start to end.
