WARNING: share trading is addictive and even in small amounts it can cause unintended elevated levels of excitement.

Option 2: ASB Securities

This option is better for more confident or larger investors.

ASB securities is a five star rated DYI direct online platform which offers access to the NZX, unlike Sharsies shares purchased through the platform can be either custodial or outright owned by you.

For beginner or smaller investors non custodial share holdings may not be suitable as share holding in a company comes with a number of responsibilities and obligations that must be meet every year, these are managed for you when shares are purchased through a custodian.

Trading fees are also higher on ASB Securities as they are geared toward larger investments unlike Sharesies which is specifically aimed at small and hobby investors.

If you would like to purchase shareholdings through ASB Securities then you will need to open a cash management account with ASB for transacting with, this account has zero fees, existing customers can do this online through their fastnet system, non ASB customers will need to visit an ASB branch in person and will need the following on hand:

  • Two forms of Photo ID
  • IRD number
  • Proof of address

PLEASE NOTE: It will take 3-5 business days to get trading on ASB Securities so if you are currently wanting to get shares to vote in the next AGM on Directors and Karl’s proposal please bear in mind that you need to allow at least 7 business days as there is a rule you need to hold your shares for 2 days before you are allowed to vote.
