A registered shareholder is a shareholder who is shown on the records of a corporation as owning the shares of the corporation and holds the shares in his or her own name. A beneficial shareholder is a shareholder who enjoys the benefits of ownership even though the title is kept in the name of a brokerage house or mutual fund. When shares are kept in this manner, the term is often referred to as keeping the shares in "street name".
In the DRS system, physical stock certificates are not issued to shareholders. Instead, shareholders receive a statement detailing the number of shares they own. These shares are held electronically by the transfer agent. This system prevents the loss of certificates, which are costly to have replaced.
Colgate does offer dividend reinvestment options as part of its Direct Stock Purchase Plan, which is sponsored and administered by Computershare.
