You can transfer your CHESS sponsored HIN (Holder Identification Number) from another broker OpenMarkets at the time you are opening an account.
In our account application forms there is a section dedicated to HIN transfers. Complete this section providing your HIN and the details of your current broker.
Please note: the entity type must match for HIN transfers to be successful.
Already have an OpenMarkets account?
If you have already set up a new account and HIN with OpenMarkets and later decide you want to transfer a HIN from another broker, you'll need to complete our standalone Broker to Broker HIN Transfer Request and submit to OpenMarkets.
Note: at this point it will not be possible to transfer the actual HIN (as you have already established a HIN with OpenMarkets) and therefore only the holdings themselves can be transferred. The other broker will usually cancel the HIN after the holdings have been successfully transferred to OpenMarkets.
