I’m trying to find shares given to me by my employer 

Employer issued shares are typically administered and maintained by a share registry. This means that they are maintained under an SRN. Learn more about employer issued shares or start your Issuer to CHESS transfer today.



SRN stands for Securityholder Reference Number. An SRN is used to identify the owner of shares that are held by a share registry (i.e. the shares are issuer sponsored). 

I have international shares that I want to transfer into CommSec

To transfer international shares, specifically US shares, into your CommSec International Trading account, simply complete an account transfer form.
