eSignatureGuarantee.com is looking to make life a little more affordable for shareholders who need a medallion signature guarantee for the transfer of securities. We appreciate the feedback we have received from shareholders throughout the country who have indicated to our customer service center that it has become increasingly difficult for an individual, entity, trustee or executor to obtain a medallion signature guarantee from a local bank branch. We recognize that many shareholders who need a medallion stamp may need it for administrative purposes to change a name, an address, to name a beneficiary, or others may need it to transfer securities that have a low value. We wanted to modify our online portal as a cost effective solution so that all shareholders can utilize our services to verify their identification and to obtain a medallion signature guarantee regardless of why they need the medallion signature guarantee.
We have discounted our fees to $149 per medallion signature guarantee. We invite all prior users and potential clients to visit us at www.eSignatureGuarantee.com

Today’s rapidly evolving technology has already led to the disruption of a number of industries. News and entertainment has become far more interactive, movies have gone from the big screen megaplex to the personal 6-inch pocket screen, and the taxi industry has been gutted by the Ubers and Lyfts of the world. One of the more recent industries to see massive disruption is finance.

What we’re finding is – and more so over the last year and a half – is that a lot of the banks, both commercial and community, are not offering this service any longer.”
What’s a medallion guarantee? “Anytime someone wants to transfer securities, whether it’s in an actual certificate form, or electronic format, if they want to transfer it to someplace else, they’re required to provide a green medallion signature guarantee stamp,” Farbman says. “And essentially, that lets the transfer agent know that somebody has reviewed the material, and this stamp is confirming that this person who’s signed for it is in fact who they say they are, and they have the authority, or the right to sign this type of document.”
It’s a problem that Farbman has experienced personally.
