What is a transfer agent?

Public companies such as GATX employ a stock transfer agent to keep records of every outstanding stock certificate and the name of the person to whom it is registered. When stock is bought/sold, the transfer agent transfers the ownership of the stock from the seller's name to the buyer's name. The registrar reconciles all transfer records and makes sure that the number of shares debited is equal to the number of shares credited. GATX's transfer agent is Computershare. The transfer agent is responsible for transferring ownership of the Corporation's publicly-traded securities, and maintaining applicable records. The transfer agent also issues and cancels certificates, and typically responds to security holder inquiries, tallies proxies, issues dividend checks and more.
