A registered share is a stock that is registered to the name of the exact owner.[1] If the owner of such a share sells their share, the new owner must register with their name and other personal information such as address and birthdate.[2]

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.[3]
