How much do you charge for IG Smart Portfolios?

We're committed to being transparent about our charges, so we’ll show you your total cost of ownership (TCO) before you invest. This is our estimate of all the costs you’ll incur in owning an IG Smart Portfolio, and includes your IG management fee (including VAT) and the Total Expense Ratio (TER) of the exchange traded funds (ETFs) you’ll hold. There are no sign-up fees, exit fees or hidden charges.

Our fee structure applies to each IG Smart Portfolio bracket (general, stocks and shares ISA or SIPP) and is based on the underlying value of all the portfolios you hold within it – so the more your investments are worth, the more you’ll save.

For example, if your general investment IG Smart Portfolios are worth £75,000, we’ll charge you a management fee of 0.65% on the first £50,000 and 0.35% on the next £25,000. If, in addition, you have an IG Smart Portfolio ISA worth £20,000, we’ll also charge you 0.65% on that amount. To make things easier, we’ll always show you the average management fee you’re paying.

Fees are quoted annually for greater clarity, but are calculated daily and charged on a monthly basis.
