Other fees you might be charged
When you exchange money, you’re charged a 0.6% currency exchange fee.
The fee is calculated on the amount to exchange, and deducted from the amount you enter.
You can exchange money on the Sharesies platform any time you like, or during the buy or sell process.
When you invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs), you’re charged a management fee. It’s charged by the fund provider—not Sharesies—and included in the unit price.
The fee pays for the fund’s management, distribution, and operational costs. It’s different for each fund, so check the fund’s disclosure documents before you invest.
When you invest in American depositary receipts (ADRs), you may be charged depositary fees. These are charged by the depositary bank that issued the ADR, not Sharesies.
The fees cover the depositary bank’s costs for managing the ADR, and are based on how many receipts you hold. Generally, the fee is less than $0.10 USD per receipt annually.
The depositary fee can be charged a couple of ways:
if the ADR pays dividends, the fee will be deducted from any dividends on the ex-dividend date before they’re paid into your Wallet
if the ADR doesn’t pay dividends, the fee will usually be deducted from your Wallet balance during the year.
Sometimes, it could be a mix of both—part of the fee deducted from your dividends and the rest deducted from your Wallet during the year.
When you use a debit or credit card to top up a Sharesies Wallet or buy a Sharesies Gift, you’re charged a card processing fee.
This fee is calculated on the amount you enter to top up or buy. You’ll see how much the fee will be before you confirm your order.
If you use a card for your first ever Wallet top up by card (for an amount up to $100), your card processing fee will be covered.
When you make a payment from a linked bank, you’re charged a transfer fee. It’s 2% on top of the amount transferred, and capped at $2 AUD per transaction.
Each time you transfer shares into or out of the Sharesies platform, you may be charged a fee depending on the direction of the transfer, the exchange the shares are listed on, and the platform your shares are held with.
To transfer shares listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) into the Sharesies platform, you won’t be charged a fee.
To transfer ASX-listed shares out of the Sharesies platform, it costs $50 AUD per investment you transfer.
To transfer shares between the Sharesies platform and a DriveWealth partner (for example, Stake, Revolut, or Douugh), you’re charged per transfer request. It’s $35 USD to transfer into the Sharesies platform, and $100 USD to transfer out. You can transfer any number of investments within a request.
To transfer shares between the Sharesies platform and a platform that isn’t a DriveWealth partner, it costs $50 USD for each investment you transfer within a request.
A $15 fee may be charged (or deducted from the remaining Wallet balance, if less) if your account is closed due to:
noncompliance with our anti-money laundering and countering financing of terrorism (AML-CFT) obligations
other inappropriate behaviour.
