Transfer shares from Computershare - Fees


ImperialSlug

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.

I have some share in stock market - Updater. I purchased them through IG market.

I understand the Updater is no more in ASX and moved as private to USA - Computershare.

Now I am not sure, if I need to have account in Computershare to transfer them or they can stay as private in IG market ?

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
    • Yeah! I think I would have to agree with you on this as I have benefited a lot from the event this recent times & I have plans of leveraging the event for a long time.
