How it works

Manage your trades when it suits you

Place trades in real time while the New Zealand and Australian markets are open, or place them after hours ready for when the market opens the next trading day. You can also change or cancel orders not yet traded.

Watchlists are a great online tool for tracking and monitoring shares. Choose a pre-loaded watchlist and monitor trends like the biggest gains, or create your own personalised watchlist to track the shares you are interested in. You'll get fast access to pricing information, analyst recommendations and company announcements.

Track how your shares are performing

Use the portfolio tool to check how your overall portfolio is performing or see what trades you've made using Online Share Trading. Also stay informed with alerts for the latest analyst recommendations and company announcements.

Research the market for opportunities

Research over 1500 companies listed on the NZX and ASX. Get access to years of company announcements, live and historical pricing information and charts, and independent research reports for a number of companies.

Transfer funds in real time
