Corporate Trust Services


Computershare's innovation, expertise and consultative approach provide effective solutions for your US corporate trust needs. In the US, Computershare can act as your:
  • Debt trustee
  • Fiscal agent 
  • Registrar 
  • Escrow agent 
  • Collateral agent
Computershare's experience and strong relationships with depositories, stock exchanges, underwriters, regulatory bodies and the legal community enable us to quickly respond to demanding deadlines for the most intricate deals. In addition, because Computershare is not a commercial lender, we are free from potential conflicts of interest as a debt trustee.

Debt Trusteeships


In the US, Computershare has more than $250 billion in debt under management (as trustee and as co-trustee with our Canadian corporate trust group). Worldwide, Computershare's corporate trust groups have $2.3 trillion in debt under administration, combined. Also, since Computershare is not owned by a deposit taking bank or engaged in lending activities and is well-capitalized to qualify under an indenture, it may act as an unconflicted successor trustee in practically all cases if needed, facilitating the succession process.

Escrow Services


When you need an independent third party to provide escrow services for a transaction, Computershare's US corporate trust team can provide the expertise required, and can meet your needs for many diverse types of escrow services.

Collateral Agent


Computershare's US corporate trust group can also act as a collateral agent, and hold a wide range of collateral types.

Computershare's Support and Experience


Our systems and processes for recordkeeping, payments and fund transfers, transaction processing, reporting and stakeholder communications have served the most complex businesses, and include US annual payment distributions totaling $400 billion in the form of approximately 40 million checks and 5.5 million electronic transfers.
