Direct Register Shares from SelfWealth

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

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

SelfWealth charges a $110 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 $110. A popular route has been through Interactive Brokers (IBKR), or nabtrade, or IG Australia. For this example we will use 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 SelfWealth to IBKR with a Basic FOP Transfer ($110), then from IBKR to Computershare via DRS transfer for a $5(US) fee.

How to Transfer:

Please Note: SelfWealth requires your name to match exactly with the account you send the shares to. So make sure you have spelled everything the same, and included middle names if necessary.

  • Once your shares and $110 are settled in SelfWealth, you need to get a transfer form from SelfWealth, fill it out and send it back. Then submit a transfer request with IBKR.
