How to sell stocks held in the UK from a previous employer

    Hi All,

    I have some stocks from a previous employment that were awarded as part of an employee stock option scheme.

    The shares are currently held by a company in the UK which told me, that they would not be able to sell them for me, as I am resident in Ireland.

    How would I go about selling these shares here in Ireland?

    I assume I will need to open an account with an Irish broker such as Davy Select but they seem to require me to invest EUR500.00 when opening an account but I only want to do this one off selling transaction.

    Any advise and pointers to a broker who I could get the stocks transferred to and sold by would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Can you transfer to Degiro ? Free trade.

    I did not think Degiro would do that. Thanks for the tip. I am going to open an account with them.

    Much appreciated.
