1. Stocks can only be transferred when names on both accounts are the same.
2. Fees: FUTU US doesn't charge any fees to transfer your stocks, but another broker may.
3. Processing time: For HK stocks, once the other broker transfers stocks out of your account, it will take 1-2 business days for FUTU US to receive the stocks. For US stocks, FUTU US needs to confirm the client's identity with the other broker. It will take a longer time, approximately 3-15 business days (the processing time is for reference only; FUTU US shall not be liable for any delay).
To transfer your shares from another broker to FUTU US, you need to submit instructions to both receiving party (FUTU US) and delivery party:
I. Submit a receiving/inbound-transfer instruction to FUTU US
II. Submit a delivering/outbound-transfer instruction to the other broker
After we receive your receiving/inbound-transfer instruction, we will contact the other broker to match their delivering/outbound-transfer instruction and arrange a date for delivery.
Please follow the instructions below to initiate an inbound transfer on the app.
