Simply log in to the Scalable app or web and start the digital process under Profile > Products > Start Transfer.

In the next step, enter the name of the previous custodian and the custody account number.
A transfer can only be carried out if the transferred custody account is in your name and comes from an account with a German IBAN. Joint or third-party custody accounts cannot be transferred.

Now select the securities, including the number of units, that you would like to transfer to Scalable Broker.
Please note: Only whole number securities can be transferred, not fractional securities. In addition, only securities that are tradable in the Scalable Broker can be transferred.

Specify whether your entire securities account or only a portion should be transferred.
