What is the minimum amount of shares I am able to purchase?

  • With CommSec Share Trading, your initial purchase of any particular shareholding must be at least $500 worth of shares, known as a 'minimum marketable parcel of shares'.
  • After your intial purchase has been made, you are able to purchase smaller amounts of shares to top up existing shareholdings. For example, if you hold $500 worth of shares in XYZ you may be able to purchase a smaller amount of XYZ to increase your existing holding.
  • With CommSec Pocket, you can start investing from $50.*

*Fees and charges apply. For more information, view the CommSec Pocket rates & fees or navigate to page 10 of CommSec's Financial Services Guide (FSG).

CommSec can only consider CHESS sponsored securities with CommSec when reviewing your holdings. Any issuer sponsored holdings or holdings with other brokers cannot be accounted for by CommSec.
