Transfer agents perform transactions between companies that issue securities and their holders to include recording changes of ownership, cancelling and issuing certificates and distributing dividends

The provisions that regulate transfer agents are covered under section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Because there is no self-regulatory organization (SRO) that oversees transfer agents the SEC has created rules for transfer agents and periodically conducts transfer agents inspections.
