How do I deposit funds and start investing in my Smart Portfolio?
After opening your IG Smart Portfolio, completing the risk questionnaire and selecting your portfolio, any funds deposited into the portfolio will automatically be invested as soon as possible. The minimum initial deposit must be above £500 before we automatically invest any money deposited between 8.30am and 4.30pm (UK time). Once your balance is above £500, a minimum deposit of £50 by bank transfer and £250 by card will apply.
You can add funds to your account by debit card or bank transfer. If the market is open, funds are usually invested the same day. However, settlements can take two to three business days.
