Hansa Trust’s Registrars, Capita Registrars, provide a service to existing shareholders to enable them to buy or sell shares.  An on-line and telephone dealing facility provides an easily accessible and simple to use service for shareholders who hold shares in their own name, rather than through a nominee, in any company for which Capita act as registrars.
