  • Under direct ownership, your shares are “registered” or recorded on our books. You receive all distributions, proxy materials, and other important shareholder communications directly from us. Direct ownership of IRET shares may be in the form of a certificate issued in your name, or may be confirmed by a statement reflecting your book-entry ownership of Distribution Reinvestment and Share Purchase Plan shares or Direct Registration shares.

    Under indirect ownership, a broker maintains your account. This form of ownership is generally referred to as “street name” ownership. You receive all distributions, proxy materials, and other important shareholder communications from your broker.

    A registered shareholder is the owner of record with the transfer agent. The registered shareholder’s name appears on the stock certificate and all mailings. Transfer agents do not keep track of shares held in brokerage accounts—those records are kept with the brokerage. The transfer agent considers the brokerage the registered shareholder because the shares are held on behalf of the shareholder by the broker. Brokerages keep track of their client’s accounts and provide their clients with information regarding their IRET shares, including the delivery of mailings, proxy materials, and distribution of dividends.
  • Direct Registration (DRS) is a book-entry registration which allows your IRET shares to be directly registered on our books without the need for a physical certificate. Under DRS, you will not receive a certificate. You will receive a statement reflecting the number of shares registered in your name on our books at least once a year and whenever there is activity in your account. This form of book-entry ownership provides advantages and benefits to you and us.

    With DRS, you won’t have the responsibility of safeguarding and keeping track of your valuable stock certificates. DRS eliminates the time and expense of getting them replaced if you can’t find them. DRS provides a more convenient way for you to transfer shares to and from your broker. There is no need to surrender and issue certificates. Distributions, proxy materials, and other important shareholder communications will be sent directly to you.

    If your shares are currently held in certificate form and you would like to convert them to Direct Registration shares, please mail your unendorsed certificates along with a signed letter authorizing us to convert your certificated shares to Direct Registration shares to our Shareholder Services Department. For your protection, we recommend sending your stock certificates via courier or certified mail.
  • A Medallion Signature Guarantee is part of the Securities Transfer Agents Medallion Program or "STAMP" Signature Guarantor. A signature guarantee is a form of authentication issued by a bank or other financial institution that verifies the legitimacy of a signature and the signatory's overall request. Transfers and securities instructions requiring owners' signatures must have those signatures guaranteed by a bank or broker. The guarantee is backed by an insurance policy and protects the issuer and others from losses as a result of fraudulent securities transfers. You can obtain one at most banks or broker’s offices.
  • If you are a registered shareholder, please contact AST at 888-200-3167 with any question on your account.

    If you hold your IRET shares through a broker, please contact your broker.
