Transfer-in Overview

Tiger Brokers ("Tiger") currently accepts clients transferring positions from other brokers to Tiger. Microcap stocks (fractional shares, OTC stocks, PINK stocks) cannot be transferred in.

Market Available: U.S. stocks, Hong Kong stocks, China A-shares (HKEX Northbound Trading) and Australian stocks (including stocks and ETF)  and Singapore

Transfer-in fees: Tiger does not charge. The transfer-out broker (the original broker) may charge. Clients need to contact the original broker to learn about the fees before the transfer.


Transfer-in time: It generally takes 3-15 business days, and the specific time is subject to actual conditions, which depends on the outbound time. Tiger will deposit the shares to the client's Tiger account within 1-2 working days upon receipt of the transfer from the original broker.

Note: The fees and related processes may vary for the shares transfer-in through depositaries or for bulk deals, etc.
