Signature guarantee

The financial definition for Signature guarantee:

The authentication of a signature in the form of a stamp, seal, or written confirmation by a bank or member of a domestic stock exchange (or other acceptable guarantor). A notary public cannot provide a signature guarantee. A signature guarantee is a common requirement when transferring or redeeming shares or changing the ownership of an account.

Signatures on Proxies
The basic rule of acceptability is that if the signature reads as the proxy is printed, it is acceptable. If an individual signs on behalf of another individual and states a legal representation, it is acceptable. Examples: executor, guardian, power of attorney; but not husband, wife, next of kin, etc. On corporate registrations, a manual signature in the name of the Corporation is acceptable. A facsimile signature is also acceptable, but a rubber-stamp signature with a signature line is acceptable only if signed on that line. With joint tenancy, one signature is sufficient, as in the case of one trustee signing for two or more.
