Don’t panic - some companies do not distribute Share Certificates, but rather hold them with their stock ledger. However, it is a good idea to check with the company to confirm you have not lost a certificate that has been sent out. If you have, you will need to go through the lost certificate paperwork process and obtain a replacement. It is best to do that right away rather than in the middle of an exit transaction down the road when the lawyers are different, etc. It is also a good idea to keep a scanned copy of each of your stock certificates in the Documents & Reports section of your Seraf account, as that copy can be helpful to refer to, or if you lose the original.
