Hi , thanks for your post!

 

I can confirm that our Australian share trading service is indeed not CHESS sponsored.  Instead of this, we operate on the 'custody' model, which means that instead of you - the client - being personally listed on CHESS, it is a Citicorp nominee, with yje client being the ultimate beneficiary of the shares.  This is the standard practice internationally, hence we we have chosen to operate in this way. There is no real change or implication for you as an IG client.

 

To reassure any concerns you have regarding the safety of your holdings under such a custody model, we maintain any client shares completely segregated from IG or Citicorp's assets, and in the event of either company folding you would still receive your shares.

 

I hope this clarifies, but please let me know if have any further questions.

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi, what about the franking credits? Do we have they passed on to us? Also the tax complications and calculations ?is it all the same without a HIN? I m not sure ATO can calculate the tax and franking credits if the shares are not under my HIN?

Hi  and 

At the end of each financial year, a specific document will be provided via the online platform that details the Franked/Unfranked dividends as well as Franking credits and other income applicable on your account.

I hope the above clarifies. 

Thanks
Jasmine

Do we also receive dividend statements throughout the year when we receive our dividends, and can we opt in to a Dividend Reinvestment Plan without a HIN?

Hey  - you will receive a statement RE: dividends each time one is paid, however currently there are no options for a div reinvestment plan (although we are looking into it).

    • London's house prices - EMEA brief 21 Aug
      Asian stocks generally up on hopes trade tensions may ease, with opes of a China - US trade resolution pushing up copper, often seen as a barometer for the economic outlook, dragging behind it miners such as BHP Billiton and Glencore. Venezuela have debased their currency taking off five zeros, along with increase minimum wage by 3000% in and effort to prop up their economy. Yesterday the world trade organisation confirmed that Turkey had lodged a trade dispute against the US. Gold gains as Trump's remarks weigh on the US dollar, whilst oil edges up on tighter US outlook and Iran sanctions. Finally, see what's going on with London house prices in the IGTV video featured video below.

    • Oil prices slip - EMEA brief 20 Aug
      Iran has stressed to OPEC over the weekend that no other member country should take up the slack for reduced oil exports in the face of Trump imposed US sanctions. Oil prices slip on concerns over slowing economic growth. Asia shares inch up with yuan ahead of Sino - US talks, whilst UK ministers are set to release their first ‘no deal’ Brexit documents on Thursday in an effort to prepare for a “worst possible” outcome. Persimmon results are expected tomorrow, with many in the sector looking to the release as a barometer for the wider housing sector and how a rising inflation rate will affect the market.
