Property Rights Anonymity
Bearer shares are a unique instrument of Dutch corporate law for assets protection and achievement of complete confidentiality/ anonymity.
A bearer share is a share whose owner’s name is not registered in the company records or in the share itself. Instead the name “bearer” is shown; and property rights and other rights to the share are proven by the share’s certificate.
A bearer share gives complete property rights anonymity of the company. On transferring ownership of the bearer no transfer notes or other documents regarding transferring are required. Transfer of ownership is performed by service of the share.
Dividends are paid by submission of a dated or indexed coupon.
