Transfer shares from Computershare - Fees

Question

I have some shares with Computershare, that I want to transfer to IG. 

The IG help states;

Do you charge for transferring investments in or out of IG? No, you can transfer your investments without any charges from us.

 

The stock transfer form is written in terms of transferring from other brokers to IG.

 

Computershare however, appear to charge a fee for transferring shares, they have a transfer form,(Transferring CDIs from the Company Nominee to another CREST participant with no change of beneficial ownership) but it is written in terms of transferring from them to anther broker.

 

So if I get IG to transfer my shares, will I be charged a fee from Computershare? - If so, do I have to pay them to release my shares?

Hi thanks for your question. Although IG don't charge for you transferring shares over to us, the counter party still may charge as they'll still have administrative costs associated with the transfer (and sometimes they use this as a deterrent to leave). Unfortunately there is no way around this - it doesn't matter who initiates the transfer as both parties still will be involved in the movement. 

 

Hope this clarifies things.
