1. Stocks can only be transferred when names on both accounts are the same.
2. Fees: FUTU SG doesn't charge any fees to transfer your stocks, but the other broker may.
3. Processing time: For HK stocks, once the other broker transfers stocks out of your account, it will take 1-2 business days for FUTU SG to receive the stocks. For US stocks, FUTU SG needs to confirm the client's identity with the other broker. It will take a longer time, approximately 3-15 business days (the processing time is for reference only; FUTU SG shall not be liable for any delay).
