Stock Power


Overview
A Stock Power is a written authorization made by the owner of a security (usually stock) to the issuer to sell or transfer the security.
It is most often used by the beneficiaries under a will or trust who become owners of the stock after the original owner has died.  
It may be also be used by an individual who owns stock to authorize someone else to complete the transfer to a new owner.
