A registered share is a stock that is registered to the name of the exact owner. If the owner of such a share sells his share, the new owner must register with their name and other personal information such as address and birthdate.
Registered shares offer the issuer the advantage of always knowing who exactly their shareholders are. Surprises with active investors could be prohibited with this stock-vehicle.
