Upon the event of your death, the executor or administrator of your estate will need to organise the closure of your Sharesies account by sending the following documents to

  • Death certificate

  • Copy of your Will, or documentation naming the executor or administrator of your estate

  • A certified copy of the executor or administrator’s ID

  • Proof of probate–required only if the value of money and investments in the Sharesies account exceeds $15,000 NZD.

Once we receive the necessary documents, we’ll be able to proceed with selling any shareholdings, or transferring NZX listed shares to a CSN, and then closing the account on the executor’s instructions. If the executor wished to take a different action with the estate, they may need to provide additional documents. We’re required by law to obtain these additional documents.
