How to Sell Issuer Sponsored Shares

Do you want to know how to sell issuer sponsored shares in Australia? Do you know the difference between selling issuer sponsored and other kinds of shares?

There are several different ways you may come to hold shares in Australia. You may have acquired shares through an inheritance, employee share scheme or received them as a gift.

The process of selling your shares will depend on the type of shares you hold.

For instance, if you engaged a stockbroker to purchase your shares, your shares are likely to be broker-sponsored (held on your behalf by a stockbroker). In this case, your shares are held on a Holder Identification Number (HIN) as opposed to being held on a Securityholder Reference Number (SRN). For us to sell shares held on HIN, your sponsoring stockbroker will need to transfer the shares to us to sell on your behalf.

Issuer sponsored shares on the other hand are usually acquired through a direct relationship with the company that issued the shares, this can include employee share schemes. Typically, selling issuer sponsored shares is a fairly straightforward process, particularly when you use an online broker service like Sell My Shares.
