Sale & Transfer Service

Get help selling or transferring shares in four easy steps.


Our Share Transfer & Sale service is divided into four steps:

  • Confirmation of the validity of share certificates and replacing missing ones where necessary;
  • Preparation of the forms for client signature;
  • Submission of the signed forms to registrars/brokers;
  • Either Return to you the share certificates in the new name(s) or Arrange for the net proceeds to be paid by our brokers directly to you.

Know that if you sell shares, you may be liable to Capital Gains Tax on any gain you have made.

If you hold US securities and wish to transfer or sell them, please refer to our Medallion Guarantee Service.
