Is it right for me?

Using a one-off sale through ASB Securities is a great option if you simply want to sell New Zealand shares or bonds at the market price and aren’t looking to trade again in the future.

A one-off sale doesn’t offer the same flexibility as a share trading account. So if any of the following apply, you’ll need to open a share trading account:

  • You're not an ASB Bank customer.
  • You've previously completed a one-off sale with ASB Securities.
  • You want to sell shares in the name of an entity (e.g. a family trust or company).
  • You want to retain some of your holdings.
  • You want to sell your holdings at a specified limit price.
