Transfer Digital shares (CSN)

The Corporate Sponsored Nominee (CSN) service is an easy way for participants to hold shares electronically. As no share certificates are produced, there is no risk of losing certificates.

How to transfer CSN Shares

​To transfer shares in or out of a CSN, or to transfer your shares held in the CSN to someone else, you will need to complete a transfer form. These can be found on our useful documents page. Please note not all options are available for some CSNs.​​​​
