Direct Register Shares from Exante

Updated: Jul 22

Exante does not direct register shares, so you need to transfer your shares to another broker that can DRS transfer.


Exante charges a €150 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 €150. You will need to make sure you have €150 settled in your account before you can transfer. A popular route has been through Interactive Brokers (IBKR).


The quickest way is to open an Interactive Broker 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 Exante to IBKR with a Basic FOP Transfer (€150 fee), then from IBKR to Computershare via DRS transfer for a $5(US) fee.
