How to get started

Anyone living in NZ with a NZ bank account, and 18+ years old can use Sharesies. 

(If you're a US citizen (for tax purposes), you won't be able to sign up to Sharesies at this stage—but we're working on it.)


Sign up

To create an account and go through the speedy ID process, you’ll need a current:

• NZ drivers licence or NZ Passport (or send us certified copies of your ID)

• NZ residential address.


Set up

Choose the amount you’d like to invest. This can be a one-off, or a regular automatic payment.



Select from the range of funds available and track their performance— investments can go up and down.




This gives you access to Sharesies and to buy and sell any investments available—as often as you like.

***For being a beta customer, you get a $15 credit in your Sharesies Wallet to start investing right away!***

What about management fees?

Any management fees are charged by the fund manager (not Sharesies)—these are included in each share price and are different for each investment. It’s important to read the Product Disclosure Statement before you invest.
