The help page suggests that I can request a Shares Certificate at any time, but I’m wondering how this works in practice? As far as I am aware the shares are held by Interactive Brokers, so would not be in my name. I notice also that although the page states that a Shares Certificate can be requested, it only says that confirmation will be sent, not the Shares Certificate. Has anyone got any experience of actually requesting one?
Share certificates appear to be defined in legislation, so it would seem a bit disingenuous to suggest you can request one if you can’t actually receive one as it is defined in legislation.
