FAQs

Why is IG offering Share Trading?

Our vision at IG is to become the default choice for active traders. Share trading is the latest step towards achieving that goal.

We believe our experience and expertise in online financial derivatives trading equips us very well to offer share trading to our existing client base, and we hope to attract a new audience with the addition of a more mainstream product like share trading.

We are confident we can offer a premium product within the existing market, and have no doubt that clients will find our prices, our platform and our people all of the highest quality.

Can I use my cash equities to margin other trades?

Yes. If you have both a margined IG account and a share trading account you can use up to 95% of the value of your shareholdings to cover margin requirements on CFDs.
