For Issuer Sponsored holdings: advise the share registry by writing a letter or completing a Change of Address Notification form.
For Participant Sponsored (CHESS) holdings: advise your sponsoring participant in writing. They will then advise the share registry of the change.
Acknowledgment of address changes will be mailed to your old and your new address.
Issuer Sponsored is where shares are held in an uncertificated form, without the requirement for sponsorship by a CHESS participant. Shareholders are not issued share certificates, but instead receive statements detailing their movements and holding balance.
Statements are issued when you first become a holder and are also mailed within five (5) business days of the end of any month in which transactions occur. The holding statement also shows your personal Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) identifying the issuer sponsored holding.
CHESS stands for Clearing House Electronic Subregister System. CHESS participants have direct access to the settlement process and can sponsor other securityholders to use CHESS facilities. All stockbrokers are participants, as are most large institutional investors, custodian nominees and trustee companies.
An individual shareholder would generally use a stockbroker as their sponsoring participant. A sponsorship agreement is then signed with the nominated participant, authorising them to deal with the holding subject to certain conditions. Your holding statements would indicate the name of the participating sponsor.
