National is a transfer agency operated from a client's perspective.
National was formed in 2015 by management operating a company listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange as well as on the OTC Markets listing service. The company had two transfer agencies, it's original U.S. agent and a Canadian Co-Agent as required by the Canadian Securities Exchange. The company was in a position that it had to pay two transfer agencies while only one could act as agent in most cases. Both transfer agencies had very high termination fees and the company was being charged in U.S. and Canadian dollars.
The President of the company decided that he wasn't happy with the billing practices of these transfer agencies so he formed National. National has built its reputation on providing services that issuers want and need rather than services that had fees based on precedent that transfer agencies have been getting away with for many years. National does not charge termination fees and communicates with the issuers to be sure that they are getting the services they want and need at the rates they can afford and agree are fair.
