Investor Trade is a convenient way to sell your New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX) listed securities without needing to open a trading account with a broker.
What is Investor Trade and how does it work?
Investor Trade is an online sale platform that allows you to conveniently sell your securities at the market price. You will receive your sale proceeds by direct credit where you have an existing bank instruction on the day of settlement (which is generally three business days after the trade date).
Which securities can I sell?
You can sell your NZX listed security holding that is below NZD30,000 in value. The holding must be in your own name with a registered address in New Zealand. Please Note: partial sales are not permitted and the holding cannot be held in a deceased estate or be a joint or company holding.
Please be aware that whenever you make a change to payment instructions or a registered address, that holding will be locked from trading for 14 calendar days to protect you and to allow us to verify the new information provided.
What does it cost?
Fees are subject to change
Note: Investor Trade will not allow you to trade if the proceeds of the sale are less than the transactional costs of the sale.
How do I know if my securities are NZX Listed?
By looking at your Securities Transaction Statement, you can quickly identify if they are NZX listed or not. If an asterisk (*) doesn't appear at the start of the security code, your security is NZX listed. Please note: Not all securities can be sold through Investor Trade.
Who can use Investor Trade?
You can sell your NZX listed securities if your holding has a registered address in New Zealand and where we act as share registry provider. Other eligibility criteria relating to your holding and its value must also be met.
