2. What does Issuer Sponsored mean?

An Issuer Sponsored holding is maintained by the issuer of your shares. All details relating to your holding are maintained by the issuer at the share registry. Your Issuer Sponsored holding can be identified by an ‘I’ at the start of your Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) which is printed on your holding statement.

When your shares are Issuer Sponsored, you are free to trade them through any broker without the need to move them around. You give your nominated broker permission to access your holding when you buy or sell.

If your shares are Broker Sponsored, you will have a Holder Identification Number (HIN) allocated to your holding rather than a Shareholder Reference Number (SRN). Your Broker Sponsored holding can be identified by an ‘X’ at the start of your HIN which is printed on your holding Statement.
