Paying Agent

An institution, usually an investment bank, that accepts funds from the issuer of a security and distributes them to that security's holders. In stocks, a paying agent receive dividends, which it then disburses to stockholders. In bonds, it receives coupon payments, which it then gives to bondholders. A paying agent acts as an intermediary in these transactions, and receives a fee for these services. See also: Outsourcing.
