Transfer to us

Why transfer to Lloyds Bank?

  • We can offer you low cost fund trading, frequent trader discounts and easy to understand admin charges.
  • Make life simple, see and manage all of your investments in one place.
  • It’s easy to do, simply log on and complete our online transfer form. Once your transfer is complete you will be able to see your investments online straight away, we'll also send you a letter to let you know.

Transfer timescales

Due to the unprecedented demand for our service transfers are taking longer than usual. Transfers are currently taking up to 12 weeks and there is currently a delay of 3 weeks to log your initial request. We are working hard to process transfers as quickly as possible and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

During the transfer process there could be a period of time when your investments or cash may not be accessed, therefore you may not be able to act on market movements.

How long does it take to transfer?

Transfer timescales

Most transfers can be completed electronically. Our usual timescales for electronic transfers of cash and UK shares is around 10 working days. Fund and international shares can take longer.

If your current broker is unable to transfer electronically it can take around 6 weeks for cash and UK shares. Fund and international shares can take up to 10 weeks.

Please be aware, we’re currently experiencing transfer delays of up to 3 weeks to log your transfer and up to 12 weeks to complete due to unprecedented demand for our service.

Are you transferring funds to us?

If you’re transferring funds to us from another broker we might hold a different fund class than the one you hold now. This means we may need to convert your fund into a class that can be transferred, which may be more expensive or could be cheaper. We do this to make sure your fund does not have to be sold as part of the transfer. Once the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that you hold the cheapest fund class we have available for investment.
