How do I withdraw funds from my IG Smart Portfolio?

You have two options.

Withdraw funds

To make funds available in your IG Smart Portfolio, you need to sell some shares. Enter the amount of cash you want to withdraw, and the equivalent number of shares will auto-sell from your portfolio. It will take around three days for your request to be processed and the cash transferred back into your account.

Close your portfolio

This option will sell everything within that specific portfolio.

How to withdraw or close

  • Log in to My IG and open your IG Smart Portfolio platform
  • Click on the menu icon at the top right-hand side and select ‘Withdraw funds’ or ‘Close portfolio’

  • Enter the amount and click on ‘Withdraw’

Once you’ve confirmed your request, we’ll sell assets at the next available opportunity. There’s a settlement period of two to three business days, before the funds are available.

Please note – we'll normally remit money to source via the same method as it was paid. We may consider a suitable alternative at our absolute discretion.
