What happens to my money if IG goes into liquidation?

In the unlikely event of this happening, all our clients would have their share of the segregated money returned, minus the administrators’ costs in handling and distributing these funds.

If there was a shortfall then individuals (and some smaller companies) may be eligible for compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
