First and for most, I apologize if this is in the wrong section.
I am wondering I held some shares in an Australian company which was taken over by another company earlier this year. (Namely Andean by Gold Corp). I was out of the country when this occurred and by default, my shares were transferred to Gold corp shares which I believe is now on the TSX. The thing is that NY and Canadian shares still use the old school physical certificates.
I received the certificate that states that I have acquired X amount of Gold corp shares however I don't know how to access these shares? I called a few brokers but they mentioned I needed to convert them to electronic form first before they can do anything with it.
This is not as easy as it seemed, could someone please guide me on this issue as I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thanks in advanced!
