The top 10,000 who have made the beta has been locked, but there’s still good news for you! You’ll be receiving a special thank you for your support and being part of the waitlist.

To ensure the best platform experience, we are letting customers in gradually based on your waitlist position. At this stage we are aiming to have 500-2000 customers onboarded each week. We appreciate your patience.

If you were in the top 10,000 before October 15th you will make the beta. We are letting customers on in batches to ensure the best platform experience as we test and scale up ASX trading.

You will be notified directly by email when it is your turn to join the Beta and will be given instructions on how to do so. If you think you should have received this email please contact and we will be able to assist.

Please contact and we will be able to assist.

Unfortunately, we can’t offer your spot to a friend or family member. If you no longer wish to participate, we will offer your spot to the next person number on the waitlist.

We’ve made it really easy to access the Beta. All you have to do is download Stake (if you’ve already downloaded it, make sure you’re using the latest version) and create an account. It takes 2 minutes.

Make sure that you use the same email address that you used to sign up to the waitlist. This is important!

Once you’ve created your account you’ll be given the option of opening a Stake ASX (Beta) or Stake Wall St account.

You don’t have to open a Stake Wall St account to open the Stake ASX (Beta) account. But we’re sure once you experience Stake, you’ll want to.

Stake ASX beta will be equipped with the ability to transfer your ASX portfolio via our fully digital patent-pending ASX portfolio transfer method. The transfer process is really easy, we’ve built it to be very simple and take just minutes to initiate. There’s also no paperwork required and we do the heavy lifting with the broker you’re moving from!

To initiate this transfer:
  • Create a Stake ASX brokerage account
  • Go into the ‘Account’ tab
  • Click ‘Portfolio Transfers’ which is third on the list of options
  • Follow the prompts

ASX portfolio transfer method is also equipped for you to bring across the P&L of those long-term gains ;).

We’ve made the process of initiating a transfer very simple and straightforward. Provided you have all of your details it shouldn’t take you longer than a couple of minutes to request a transfer. Once initiated it’s over to our team and your existing broker. Our team will do their very best to ensure your transfers are as fast as possible, however, this is dependent on the participation of your existing broker. We do expect a high demand for transfers, so we appreciate your patience.

Because your holdings are CHESS sponsored under your own HIN only whole shares are supported. You cannot purchase fractional ASX shares.

The initial purchase of shares in any listed ASX company or ETF must be at least $500. This is the ASX ‘minimum marketable parcel’ rule. However after that initial $500 purchase, there is no minimum on subsequent purchases of shares in the same company.

Stake ASX is currently scheduled for broader release later this year. We’ll release more information as we progress through the beta period.

You will require the currency of the local market in order to place a trade there e.g. USD for Wall St and AUD for ASX. For the release of ASX beta, you will have your very own on-platform Stake AUD wallet in addition to your Stake USD wallet (should you also have a Wall St account). This allows you to deposit, hold and transfer funds in either USD or AUD. On beta it will work like this:

For USD and Wall St trading
  • Deposit to your USD wallet will be as per normal, via POLi or bank transfer and with regular or express speeds available.

For AUD and ASX trading
  • Deposits to your AUD wallet will be close to instant (currently 5-15 minutes) with no fee. The speed is dependent on if your bank offers Osko and/or if this is the first payment made (some banks allow may require 24 hours for a new transfer).

Transfers between AUD and USD
  • Funds can be sent between your AUD and USD wallet on the Stake platform. During beta, this will be with existing speed (regular, express) with the standard FX fee. Sending funds from USD to your AUD wallet will act like a withdrawal in line with current timings (T+2 for settlement). This of course is something we will continue to optimise towards release.

Whilst the product is in beta, yes it is a live trading environment. This means that all standard market conditions apply. We have performed stringent internal testing, however, this is still a beta so welcome all feedback and bug notes via the easily accessible in-app beta feedback form.

With our one-touch smart switch, you can toggle between your US and ASX portfolio at the click of the button. As such with Stake ASX you will still have full access to trade the US market.
