I have made personal use of the services of SMB Enablers and Golden Egg to transfer a substantial and diverse portfolio of old Indian stocks that my mother and I inherited from my father about 15 years ago. There are a number of aspects that have made this a complex endeavor, including the fact that these were old shares that were in physical form and that had not been changed over for a long time. Further there were many stock splits and mergers, new shares issued, joint ownership, the threat of IEPF transfers, setting up demat accounts, etc. all made more difficult by the fact that my mother and I reside in the USA.
SMB Enablers helped us by creating a plan, taking charge of all the paperwork, preparing documents, getting all the signatures and notary endorsements, and pursuing each share as required with the appropriate agency. The project is still ongoing, and is likely to carry on for some time.

I accidentally came across SMB enablers of Chennai, through some friends and happened to meet Srikanth Gopalan. I wasn’t sure about their credentials initially, since they had just started this service of retrieval of unclaimed dividends and shares. In my case, I wasn’t even aware of the details of the shares and the lost dividends – relating to the shares of my father which I inherited and was resigned to my loss. However, Srikanth and his team (Prabhakar Kanniyappan and Ganapathy Subramanian) did a great job and retrieved most of my valuable shares and the unclaimed dividends, through dedicated and focused efforts. I think I was their first client and am extremely happy with the results they produced in a short time span.
Honestly speaking, I am indeed happy and grateful to Srikanth and his team at SMB enablers for a wonderful job done – which I thought was a lost cause. They are a good team with commitment and focus and I am a delighted client. I will certainly recommend SMB enablers to anyone who have problems and issues with lost shares, transmission of shares, unclaimed dividends etc.

I know Mr.Srikanth and Mr.Sridhar for more than 10 years. Both of them are competent and more than that-ethical professionals. I referred two clients for transmission of shares. Both were complicated and involved legal issues. One case has been completed in quick time and the other is progressing satisfactorily. They are accessible, pro active and transparent. They report periodically to clients and also keep me posted. I have no hesitation in recommending them. My Best wishes……..
