Selling paper shares, what options?

    I have some shares in paper form as share certificates that I wish to sell, who would you recommend to use? Is Cantor Fitzgerald the best option? Davy Select looks to require an account setup.

    It will be a one off sell, I don't need share dealing facilities afterwards.

    I did same thing recently- once off for some very old share certs and I used Davy. They required my ID to get set up but was smooth and quick, then I posted in the share cert.

    This enabled me to trade online and leverage lower trading costs: and I then picked my day to sell.

    No further costs etc after the selling fee. From memory €20k of shares was around €250.

    Hope this helps
