Transfer paper share certificates

Important information: please keep in mind that the value of investments can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to one of Fidelity’s advisers or an authorised financial adviser of your choice.

How to transfer share certificates

We've broken down the transfer process into three simple steps. Before you start, you'll need to have an Investment Account. If you don't already have one, you can explore the benefits and open an account. 

Explore Investment Account
Search for your shares
Complete forms
Post your documents

If you hold shares electronically with Equiniti, Computershare or Link Asset Services, you can transfer them to us with the corporate nominee transfer instruction. Please contact your registrar to find out if you need to do anything else to finalise the transfer (such as complete additional forms or pay exit fees).
