Direct Share Registration (DRS) for US stock


Ercam

Recommended Posts

Hi,

as a UK resident, what is the process which will allow me to directly register my shares of US companies?

the designated transfer agent for the companies in question is Computershare. I called them (UK branch) and got told that they can only register UK companies shares.

 

thanks.

Hi Ercam, did you get any answers from support on this. I've had 2 replies. The first failed to even understand the question and the second suggesting I would have to transfer my shares to another broker.

I have not found out how to do this via IG yet but I have moved some that I had in Interactive Brokers. So maybe we need to move to them from here and then on to ComputerShare

How's their app for usability?

Any follow up for IG before I look at the transfer process? Won't want to keep multiple brokers

    • Latest PHE data and vaccine effectiveness continues to drop so now all but 2 age groups have a higher number of vaxxed than unvaxxed with a positive test rate. Both groups are the young who have the lowest risk of severe illness from covid. Covid infection in vaxxed 40-49 yr olds double the unvaxxed rate - The Conservative Woman   To continue on the ivermectin theme, months ago there was a campaign to donate the expensive vaccines to the 3rd world as the drug companies had a 'no returns policy' included in the govt contracts but it all tailed off.  Perhaps the 3rd world didn't want the vaccines given the high adverse reactions, waning efficacy and that they had something better. India crushed it's recent wave with govt distributed ivermectin blister packs in June, similar story in Mexico and in parts of Africa where ivermectin is used as a prophylactic for many parasitic and viral diseases covid never took off at all. (see charts)  
    • FCA rules to ban crypto products are dumb. I used to have a Bitcoin ETN in my SIPP which was affected by the ban, meaning I could no longer buy the product anymore, only sell it. I sold it recently with a heavy heart knowing under the current rules I could not buy it again.   With the proceeds I bought a range of Bitcoin mining stocks like Argo Blockchain, Hut8 and Mara which act as a leveraged play on Bitcoin price (like all commodity miners do versus the underlying commodity). These miners carry greater operational risk than holding Bitcoin itself and the share price is much more volatile too. So instead of protecting me, all the FCA has done is forced me to take greater risk elsewhere.
