Direct Register Shares from Bolero

Updated: 21 hours ago

Bolero does not direct register shares, so you need to transfer your shares to another broker that can DRS transfer. Bolero charges a €50 fee for each Basic FOP Transfer. This means each time you want to transfer a specific stock (no matter how many shares) you are charged €50. You will need to make sure you have €50 settled in your account before you can transfer.

A popular route has been through Interactive Brokers (IBKR). The quickest way is to open an IBKR account, buy a share, and request a DRS transfer (link to guide here). While you wait for your Computershare account to be created, you can transfer your shares from Bolero to IBKR with a Basic FOP Transfer for a €50 fee, then from IBKR to Computershare via DRS transfer for a $5(US) fee.

How to Transfer:

Once your shares and €50 are settled in Bolero, you need to create a Letter of Instruction. To do this you need to submit a transfer request with the receiving broker (IBKR).
