How do I transfer assets out of my Capital One Investing℠ account?

When making a transfer from your Capital One Investing? account to a non-Capital One Investing brokerage account you can request either a partial transfer (transfer of specific assets) or a full transfer (transfer of all assets). Follow the instructions below to request a transfer out of your Capital One Investing account:

First, you will need to obtain a copy of the receiving broker's account transfer form. When completing the form, you'll need to list:

  • Whether you are completing a partial or full transfer
  • The ticker symbol of the securities to be transferred
  • The number of shares to be transferred
  • The amount of cash to be transferred

When requesting a transfer, only whole shares may be transferred. Fractional shares cannot be transferred and are liquidated for a full transfer or left in your Capital One Investing account for you to hold or liquidate for partial transfers. Please note that option contracts cannot be transferred if they are within 30 days of expiration.

When you submit the transfer form, please let the receiving brokerage know that Capital One Investing is not an ACATS (Automated Customer Account Transfer System) eligible broker and that the transfer will need to be completed manually. In addition, the form must have a Medallion Signature Guarantee.

Please be sure to include a printout of your most recent Capital One Investing account statement with the transfer form. If you are transferring an IRA or ESA account, please also include a Letter of Acceptance from the firm you are transferring to. Once we receive your paperwork, an alert message will be posted to your account within three business days. Please note we cannot accept paperwork that has been altered in any way (e.g. items cross out or overwritten). Once the transfer is approved, it will take approximately 30 days to complete.

Tip: Please note it is not possible to use a wire withdrawal request to transfer assets an external investment account. If you simply wish to withdraw funds from your investment account via wire, click here for instructions.
