Please find below all you need to know about transferring to us. For alternative options, please refer to your letter from Invesco Perpetual.

Passionate about investment, our accounts and services are designed to make investing in the stock market easy, whether online or by phone.
Your account has now transferred
As of Tuesday 18 April, you are able to sign in and view your account online, or manage it over the phone. You should have received a welcome letter from us confirming all the details.
To log in for the first time using the button above, you will need to the following information:
- Your TSC Customer Reference Number – this can be found on the welcome letter we have sent you and is a 10 digit number starting 11
- Your Invesco Account Number – this can be found on correspondence you have previously received from Invesco, and is a 10 digit number starting with ‘0006’
- Your postcode
After your first login you can then use the normal login button available on any share.com page.
Admin fee: £4.00 + VAT per month
Admin fee: £1.50 + VAT per month
Statements and contract notes by post: £1.00 + VAT per month
Dealing commission: 1% per deal (min £7.50)
Your account fees will be based on our share account or ISA tariff and will be collected on or around the 26th of each month. The first charge will be in April 2017.
If you deal regularly or have a lump sum to invest, you should consider switching to our frequent dealing option once your account is set up. For a quarterly fee of £20.00 + VAT, you’ll pay dealing commission fixed at £7.50 per deal.
Also, if you’d rather receive your statements and contract notes by email, rather than postal, this is free of charge.
Regular Account statements
We’ll send you a statement every six months in April and October.
Please note that we will be taking over the administration of your account and the safe custody of your investments, however we will not be taking over the investment management of the investment trusts themselves. Invesco Asset Management Limited will continue to manage the companies' underlying investments.
Simply easier investing
Once your account has been transferred to us, you’ll get access to the host of benefits that we offer.
You'll have the freedom to buy and sell whatever investments you choose: stick to the Invesco Perpetual investments which are already in your account, or sell them and invest from the wide range we offer. You can also pay in and withdraw money.
All the help and advice you need to choose the right investments for you, including:
Whether you choose to do it online or by phone, managing your account is easy:
- Extensive research and dealing tools including limits and stop losses
- Online payments and withdrawals (we’ll confirm the details in your welcome letter)
- Regular investing service (which usually works out cheaper in terms of dealing commission)
- Automatic dividend reinvestment and pay out
If you are investing monthly into Investment Trusts and you wish to continue to do so with The Share Centre, you’ll need to complete the Regular Investing form that was enclosed with your letter from Invesco Perpetual at the end of March. The new Direct Debit will be setup after your existing holdings have transferred across over the Easter bank holiday weekend of 14th to 17th April 2017. Due to the lead time to set up a Direct Debit with the bank, the first available collection date will be 16th May, for which the Regular Investing form must be received at The Share Centre no later than 27th April 2017.
Additional Information for ISA customers: If you wish to setup the regular investment into your ISA, you must also include the ‘Application for an ISA’ form that was sent to you. Please be aware that doing this will mean that you won’t be able to subscribe to your ISA with Invesco Perpetual for the 2017/18 tax year.
Which of my assets have transferred to the Share Centre?
Invesco Perpetual have transferred any investment trusts holdings you held within your Invesco Perpetual account as of 13 April 2017, as well as any residual cash, to your new account at The Share Centre. Any ICVC funds held within your Invesco Perpetual account or other cash held with them have remained with Invesco Perpetual, unless you have instructed otherwise. Please contact Invesco Perpetual for further details about the any assets that have remained with them.
Do you use an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA)?
If you would like your IFA to have access to your account with us, you will need to write to us confirming their name and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) reference. Your IFA can also submit this request, provided you have signed and authorised it. They will be able to view your account, but not deal on your behalf.
If you change your mind after transferring to us
We’re confident that you’ll be delighted by the service you receive from us, however, if you wish to transfer to another broker, simply contact them and complete one of their transfer forms. Our standard transfer charge is £25.00 per account, however we will not charge you if we receive your request within six weeks of joining us.
Already got an account with The Share Centre?
Your customer reference number with us will not change. We’ll simply give you a new account number for the account being transferred from Invesco Perpetual. If you already have an account with us, you can arrange to consolidate them.
