Avenir’s team brings technology, service and experience to businesses

Avenir are experienced at helping companies save time, costs and reduce the risk of errors. Our brand new, real time technology supports both the company and its shareholders.  What is more, Avenir will help you meet key legal requirements seamlessly.

Avenir’s team brings technology, service and experience to businesses. We eliminate the burden of keeping up to date with increasingly complex regulatory requirements.

Avenir will focus on the details whilst letting you focus on business strategy.

Avenir share registration services are run on modern, real time technology providing both companies and their shareholders direct access to view their holdings and share certificates online.

The shareholder records, Cap tables and other reports are easily downloadable into excel.

We simplify accounting, auditing and legal reporting. Avenir also offers companies the scope of utilising the CREST settlement system to dematerialise securities, so that investors can hold shares electronically with their brokers or pension funds.

This is not usually required for small businesses, but maintaining your register with Avenir means that your company is ready for growth, future merger and acquisition activity and potential stock market listing.
