02

Access the markets you want and the services you need

At ASB Securities, we understand that not all investors are the same and what is right for one, is not necessarily right for another. That’s why we give you access to a range of products and services, so you can choose which ones best suit your individual style and investment goals.

Buy and sell New Zealand and Australian shares online

Online Share Trading makes buying and selling shares on the NZX and ASX easier and more convenient. You don’t have to call a broker and you can place your trades in real time with live pricing data and other resources at your fingertips.

Trade shares on major international markets

Our team can help you trade on major international markets like New York and London. We do this through our network of brokers who act as our agents in overseas markets. We also have an international custodian who holds and administers your overseas holding on your behalf.

Choose the currency you trade in

When you register for Online Share Trading, we’ll set you up with an ASB Cash Management Account which is specifically designed for settling your trades in New Zealand dollars.

If you want to trade in the local currency of an international market, we can also set up an ASB Foreign Currency Account for share trading. You can move money between your ASB Foreign Currency Account and ASB Cash Management Account at any point, when the exchange rate suits you.

Diversify with a range of investment choices

We’re not just about investing in shares. We also provide access to exchange traded funds and New Zealand fixed interest securities such as bonds and term investments. If you’re interested in new issues and initial public offerings (IPOs) we can provide access to these as well.

Solutions for migrant investors

If you’re moving to New Zealand as a migrant investor and you’re looking to buy Immigration NZ-approved securities, we can help. Through us you can access a range of investments and we will assist you in placing orders for your selected securities.

Open up opportunities with margin lending

We offer margin lending, which you could use to increase the scope of your portfolio. Margin lending lets you borrow to invest, using your existing securities as collateral. There are risks, so make sure you understand these first.

Simplify investing with our nominee service

Our nominee service is designed to help make it easier for you to manage your investments. You receive all dividends, corporate actions and other selected information but we'll manage the paperwork for you.
