To trade US shares from Australia, a different ownership model needs to be in place. Read our article on the ownership structure of US shares.
For Australian shares you buy through SelfWealth, you own them directly and will receive information regarding corporate actions (such as voting) through the share registry. You will then be able to vote on these issues.
For US stocks, as you are the beneficial owner and as SelfWealth's US trading partner, Phillip Securities Pte Ltd, is the legal owner of your holdings, they retain the voting rights for your stock. The control number is retained by Phillip Securities Pte Ltd. Phillip Capital is unable to comment regarding the activities including voting at EGMs and AGMs by our custodian Phillip Securities Pte Ltd.
