How does it work?

The Corporate Sponsored Nominee works by removing investors names from the main register and holding them together with other investors in the nominee company. A separate register of underlying individual investors is maintained behind the scenes by the nominee.

You will still enjoy the benefits of owning shares, retain the right to receive dividend payments and the company will generally make available financial information and arrange for you to attend and vote on matters put to general meetings of the company.
