How do I transfer issuer sponsored shares over to CHESS with CommSec?

You can submit a transfer request online by logging into your account and navigating to Settings > Service Centre > Transfers shares. Upon receiving your request, the transfer will take approximately up to 2 business days to complete.

Important note: To help ensure your transfer request is successful, please firstly check that the registered name and address recorded with the share registry exactly matches your CommSec account. Any differences should be updated with the share registry or CommSec before submitting the request to ensure a successful transfer.
