Portfolio Transfers to Stake

Can I fund my account via POLi?

POLi is no longer supported in Australia since 30 September 2023. Australian financial institutions have ceased support – please check your bank’s website for further information. 

POLi will continue to be supported for New Zealand accounts.    

You can use POLi-supported bank transfers to securely deposit funds to your Stake Account. The minimum funding amount is NZ$50.

To make a POLi-supported deposit:

  • On the Stake app, head to your portfolio dashboard and tap Buying power > Add funds; on web, click on the wallet icon in the right-hand corner > Add funds

  • Input the deposit amount

  • Select POLi and your preferred funding speed

  • Follow the prompts to complete your POLi payment
