    A transfer agent and registrar for a publicly held company keep records of every outstanding stock certificate and the name of the person to whom it is registered. When stock changes hands, 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.

    If you own shares through a brokerage firm account, you should contact your broker for information about your account and requests for a stock certificate.
