Yes. Selling shares online has never been more secure.
The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) is one of the most technologically advanced and highly regulated exchanges in the world. Official market participants and brokers are kept under the close eye of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Securities Exchange to maintain the highest levels of financial security and market integrity.
We are obligated by law to follow a strict compliance process when selling shares online. These rules require that we verify your identity (which we do with a best practice online method) before we sell your shares online. Also, before we sell your shares, we contact the official share registry of the company you are selling shares in to confirm a match of names, addresses, and contact details with official holding records. Once the sale is complete an official contract note is posted to you for proof of trade.
In addition to our strict compliance process, all information entered into the our website is secured by SSL. SSL is the industry standard for encryption and protection of personal details, keeping you safe 24/7. When you visit our share sale page, you will notice the http:// in your browser address bar will change to a https://. The ‘s’ means the information you put in the form is encrypted before being sent over the internet. Data stored on our server is also encrypted.
You will notice a McAfee site seal in the bottom left of your browser. This seal is provided by McAfee (one of the worlds largest internet security organisations), as they scan our site each day to verify that it is not infected by malware or any other online threats.
All of this allows us to sell shares online with the fastest, safest, and most reliable methods available in Australia.
