Most financial institutions offer the facility of holding securities, via a nominee. In this case, although the master account may be in the name of an individual, the fiscal assets are held in the name of the institution.

This arrangement can offer a certain degree of confidentiality, as an individual name will not appear on any share or bondholder's register. The system also enables the sale of assets to be instant, without the need to provide the original certificates.
