Advanced Share Registry

Boutique Australian Share Registry

Advanced Share Registry is a boutique agency used by over 100 ASX listed companies.

The company mainly covers small-cap shares with a majority of clients having a market capitalisation under $100m. Only a handful of bluechips larger than $1B use their services; these include SOL, GEM and PLS.

Advanced Share Registry's website is possibly the best of all Australian share registries. It's clean, easy to navigate and contains a depth of information not available on competing websites.

Being a small company (Perth and Sydney offices) means there's no overseas support team or large call centre attending to your enquires. Assistance is usually prompt and personable.

Reasons to contact a Share Registry include:

  • Confirm your share holdings
  • Replace lost paperwork
  • Change your address for company correspondence
  • Update TFN details
  • Provide dividend payment instructions
  • Change communication options (e.g. post or email)

FAQs

What is a Share Registry?

A share registry is an organisation that helps a company manage their list of shareholders. Responsibilities include maintaining an accurate record of shareholder transactions, issuing holding statements and managing dividend payments.

All ASX listed companies have a dedicated share registry that shareholders can contact about their holdings.

SRN vs HIN

Long gone are the days where shareholders receive a share certificate in the mail to prove their holdings.

Shares are now digitally held on HIN (with a stockbroker) or SRN (with the registry). No matter which way your shares are held, you remain the beneficial owner, even if the stockbroker or registry goes bankrupt. Look at the first character of your SRN/HIN on your most recent Holding Statement:

  • An "X” indicates your shares are held on CHESS under a HIN (Holder Identification Number) with a stockbroker.
  • An "I” indicates your shares are held ISSUER SPONSORED under an SRN (Security Reference Number) with a share registry.

If you hold shares on CHESS then your stockbroker should be your first point of contact for any queries regarding your holdings. They will liaise with the registry on your behalf and can confirm with 100% certainty the number of shares you hold on that HIN.

If you hold shares Issuer Sponsored then you will need to contact the registry for anything related to your holdings (e.g. address changes, confirm holdings etc.).
