“Thank you for your assistance in our Lost Shareholder search. Not only are we able to ensure our continued compliance with SEC regulations, but with Georgeson's assistance, we have successfully located a number of clients whose assets might otherwise have been escheated. This saves our organization time, and helps us to better service our clients. It's an added benefit that our organization bears no cost for this service.”
