According to Swedish law, all limited liability companies need to keep a register of their shareholders. It can be time consuming to keep this register manually if your company has many shareholders. If you affiliate your shares to our digital securities system, we will update the register in case of changes in holdings and ownership. We can also offer affiliation of non-Swedish shares.
When you affiliate your shares to our system and we keep your register of shareholders, you will benefit from a reliable management of your securities, while simplifying and streamlining the process in regards to:
• Ownership changes
• Management of payments
• Automatically withheld preliminary tax regarding dividends
We are the entry point to the Swedish financial market. Besides getting a simplified management of the register of shareholders, an affiliation of your shares to our system also means that your company is well prepared for a listing.
A prerequisite for companies wanting to get listed, is to affiliate their securities to our system. To increase your freedom of choice when you are about to list your company on a marketplace, it is important to plan ahead. We will provide you with guidance and expertise to make sure your process goes as smoothly as possible.
An affiliation of a company’s shares consists of several steps. Before we can start affiliating your shares, you need to make some preparations. For example, a record day provision needs to be included in your company's articles of association, and the record day provision needs to be in force. If there are still any issued physical share certificates among your shareholders these needs to be cancelled.
In conjunction with the affiliation, you also need to appoint an issuer agent. An issuer agent is a bank or broker. Below you will find a list of agents that can help you in the process.
We can also offer affiliation of non-Swedish shares. Depending on the country in which the shares have been issued, the process may differ on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us about how to proceed.
You can find general information about affiliation of non-Swedish shares and our offering in the document below.
