All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

How do I deposit funds into my account?

To deposit funds, log in to My IG, and click ‘add funds’ next to the account you’d like to deposit into.

You can deposit funds with a credit card, debit card, HK FPS or via bank transfer.

Card

The quickest way to fund your account is by credit or debit card, as successful payments are deposited immediately.

Before funding you will need to register your chosen card. You may have up to five cards listed on your account at a time, but each card must be in your name and registered to the address you use for your IG account.

FPS Hong Kong Dollars (HKD)

You can make deposits via FPS to IG in Hong Kong dollars, at no cost and will typically take one business day to clear. Note, HKD FPS is only available for Hong Kong bank accounts.

Please simply use the following proxy ID to make the transfer into IG’s account.

Proxy ID: fps@ig.com

Important: please ensure you quote your Account ID as reference (eg.CX17H). Using your account ID allows us to allocate your funds efficiently. If this information is not entered correctly, there may be delays in allocating your funds.
