I have a Polish bank account and I'm able to buy shares from NASDAQ. It looks like my bank has a trade agreement with NASDAQ.

What actually happens when I buy shares from NASDAQ? Will my ownership be registered directly in NASDAQ, and when I change bank or move abroad, can I 'take' my owned shares to another bank account?

I have never bought foreign shares so I'm not sure how it's expected to work.

  • I not familiar with Poland, but in the USA, you do own the stocks and the bank just keeps track of them for you. You can transfer your stocks between banks via the 'ACAT' transfer process.
