I'm going O/S for a while, who knows I might stay but have shares here which I'd like to keep for now. My question is; would it be better to keep them in a chess sponsored account with one of the main bank/traders here and then transfer them to an institution O/S if staying or should I quit my chess and take control of these shares.
My thinking in taking control is; if I have the documentation of ownership I can walk into any bank/trader and have them up and running within days as apposed to having to deal with two different institution in to different countries, God only knows what kind of inter-institutional/ national fees and chargers are likely to arise, let alone the period of time any transfer is likely to take?
How would a person take control of any shares if they wanted to, for the reasons I have already stated?
Any help with sorting out this dilemma would be greatly appreciated.
