How long does it take to withdraw funds if I have sold shares?

When selling shares physically in the market, there’s a two or three day settlement period before your funds become available to withdraw. In the meantime, the value will appear as a credit should you wish to trade.

Once the funds have settled, regular withdrawal times will apply. Please see the ‘Why haven’t I received my withdrawn funds?‘ section for full details.
