Easiest way to sell shares in paper format?

    Newbie here. Please be kind!

    I have a portfolio (6 UK companies) of shares in certificate format. They are all in my name.

    I want to sell them all - at the least commission charge.

    I would appreciate advice on where to go.

    Thank you

    Hi MOTF, I had this very problem a few years back and I used a small stockbroker in Dublin, but I see they are since gone out of business.

    Your best bet would be to ring around a few of the Irish stock brokers and see if they will deal with your paper share certs.

    This link below might be helpful:, based on the value of your investments it may or may not make sense to transfer your shares to a lower cost stock broker to do the sale (like Degiro) if the transaction fees are excessive with the stock broker that converts (or dematerialises) your share certificates.
