nominee holding

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A share holding registered in a name other than that of the real owner. This is sometimes done for sheer convenience, for example when unit trusts hold shares which are ultimately the property of their own unit-holders. In other cases it is done to avoid revealing the identity of the owner, for example when shares are being acquired prior to a takeover bid.
