USD from Yuh to IB

Hi everyone

I plan to sell my ETF‘s and Stocks at Yuh (~20k USD) and invest them in VT at Interactive Brokers. I already have an IB account with ~20k USD invested, done by transfering CHF to IB and then converted to USD.
I now realized that transferring USD with the swiss IBAN of IB is not possible.


  • Convert the USD to CHF at 0.95% and transfer the CHF for to IB for free
  • Transfer the USD to IB in the USA (Interactive Brokers LLC, One Pickwick Plaza, …) with potentially even higher fees?
  • Any other ideas?

What would be the best way to transfer 20k USD from Yuh to IB?

Thanks a lot for your help!

I doubt you’ll pay more than 20-30 USD. So that’s way better than the other option.

Transfer the shares themselves to IB instead of converting to cash?
How much do they charge per position?

Just realized, Yuh only accepts SEPA countries for international transactions. Means, I first would need to transfer the USD with swiss IBAN to another account (f.e. Swissquote, Raiffeisen)…

According to their terms that‘s unfortunately not possible, as they only have fractional shares.

Or PostFinance. If you have a ‘smart’ package that costs 5 CHF per month, you can get a IBAN for USD for no additional cost.


Or to a (very trustworthy) friend with a usd account…

I could imagine it’s possible - with Citibank converting at their rate.

Does Yuh support bank transfers to non-IBAN countries? :clown_face:

EDIT: whoops, you beat me to it and found out yourself.

Best or cheapest?

What about Revolut? They provide an IBAN for their USD account.
