A co-ownership account is a collective securities account on which no transactions can be carried out without the authorization of all co-owners.

Yes, via a simple gift or inter-vivos donation, opting for "distribution with reserve of usufruct." In this way, you transfer the bare ownership but maintain the usufruct. In other words, you continue to receive dividends, vote and take part in the Annual General Meetings. If the donation is made to a spouse or relative entitled to inherit, the loyalty bonus is maintained.

Note that an inter-vivos distribution donation allows you to transfer a greater number of securities than through a fully-owned donation while remaining below the taxable threshold. Bare ownership is valued based on the age of the beneficial owner. Your notary or legal advisor should remain your key advisor on this subject.
