Medallion Signature Guarantees
Title Research is one of a limited number of suppliers able to obtain Medallion Signature Guarantee stamps in the UK.
Why do I need a Medallion Signature Guarantee stamp?
When transferring funds or securities from the USA or Canada, you are required to confirm your identity and signature to the financial institution you wish to transfer the funds from. This statutory requirement is in place to prevent fraudulent activity. The Medallion Signature Guarantee stamp acts as confirmation to the financial institution that your identity and signature are genuine.
Where can I obtain a stamp?
Only US and Canadian financial institutions which belong to the Securities Transfer Agents Medallion Programme can issue stamps. Title Research has an arrangement with financial institutions allowing us to obtain a stamp on your behalf.
We can process all identity checks, verify ownership, value the asset and liaise with the issuing authorities in the USA and Canada.
