From the ESPP of my former employer I have a few shares (broker is Morgan Stanley).
This ESPP account is free but very inflexible (no trading etc.). I would now like to transfer these shares to IB.
Morgan Stanley does not allow ACATS on the ESPP account, transfers are only possible via DTC / FOP. For this I would have to send paper forms and copies of IDs to the USA.
Anyone with experience in this? Would selling & buying be a better option? It is about 100k$…
