How do I find my HIN Number


Guest Mat

Question

I'm looking to transfer some of my investments to another broker which requires my Holding Identification Number  or HIN number. I'm seeing other replies to similar questions stating that IG does not provide this information. Who then does? How do I contact them?

Can you please advise where my HIN number is located?

Shares are recorded on the CHESS Sub-register when you are broker sponsored, and controlled by your broker who issues the client with a unique Holder Identification Number (HIN) which identifies the client’s holdings. If the client has shares held with different brokers, the client will then have more than one HIN. IG do not issue HINs, as we operate under the custodial model. The receiving broker only needs our PID (20018) to transfer stock.

Hi there,

Does this mean there is no way to access the share holdings on the share registry?

Sometimes I login the share registry website to access some forms related to the shares i'm holding.
