Working with us will never be “business
as usual.” That’s a good thing.

We’re the first to admit that transfer agents perform the same basic functions. But at Continental Stock Transfer & Trust, we know that being your agent of choice requires more.

As the only major transfer agent specializing in fully supporting emerging growth in midsize companies, we support your unique needs and those of your shareholders without question, above and beyond your expectations. While this means that you can get on with business, for us, it also means going the extra mile to execute exactly what you need, when you need it. And there’s nothing “usual” about that.

“The Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company management team is a highly valued long-term partner for Westar in handling our broker transfers and DTC interface. Don Gress and his operations staff are very knowledgeable and responsive to our needs.”

Patrick L. Anderson, Manager, Shareholder Services, Westar Energy
