What is the difference between a registered and a beneficial shareholder?

A beneficial shareholder is an investor who holds shares through a broker. The shares are registered to the brokerage, which holds the shares in its own name “to the benefit” of the investor, and passes all benefits such as voting rights and dividends to the investor. If your shares are held in a brokerage account, then you are a beneficial shareholder. Communications from TC Energy such as annual reports and management information circulars, as well as dividend payments are routed to beneficial shareholders through the broker.

A registered shareholder holds shares directly, registered in the investor’s own name. Communication with and dividend payments to registered shareholders are handled through our transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company.

Note that Investor Relations does not have access to individual shareholder accounts for either beneficial or registered shareholders, and therefore all account enquiries should be directed to your broker (for beneficial shareholders) or to our transfer agent (for registered shareholders).
