Deposit Certificates

If you hold paper share certificates you can put them in your account to be held electronically. The facility is referred to as a nominee service, which is a feature of our Trading Account and allows you to view all your holdings, and see current valuations online.

Your shares will be transferred into the name of TD Direct Investing Nominees (Europe) Limited but you will remain the beneficial owner.
