A shareholding can either be registered in the owner's name (owner-registered) or nominee-registered, i.e. the nominee is registered in the owner's place in the register of shareholders.
With owner-registered holdings, the shares are deposited in a securities account in the owner's name, while nominee-registered holdings are registered in the nominee's name in a nominee account. The nominee, a bank or other securities institute, collects the safe custody clients' holdings in the nominee account.
Nominees keep a register of the shareholders who have their shares registered in the name of a nominee. On request from Euroclear Sweden or the company they provide information about all shareholders and number of shares in. The nominee register is a complement to the register of shareholders and specifies which shareholders own what.
