If you do not open a GIA, we will need to hold onto your shares under the Crowdcube Nominee. You may be charged a discretionary £50 processing fee for transferring your shares from the Crowdcube Nominee at a later date. If you do not open a GIA, you will not be able to view, monitor or easily sell your investments through Crowdcube.
To open a GIA, you must hold a UK National Insurance number, have a UK residential address, and are not a US citizen or hold a dual nationality including US citizenship. Please get in touch with us about transferring your shares to a brokerage account, and we can discuss if any fees apply.
Note: if a Crowdcube funded company lists on a public exchange, and as an investor, you’re invited to open a GIA, you will be charged a 5.0% success fee if that funded company raised on Crowdcube after 01/04/2021. The success fee (based on the current market value of your shares) only applies to any profit made and will be deducted from your GIA once opened, or upon transfer of your shares to a third-party account.
