How long does it take to withdraw funds once I have sold shares?

Once you’ve sold any investments with IG, you may have to wait a couple of days to withdraw your funds. This is because we need to wait for your shares to settle. This normally takes two days for UK equities (T+2) and three days for US equities (T+3). Once you’ve sold your shares you can use the cash to trade more shares immediately, you just won’t be able to withdraw your funds until we’ve physically received them from our broker.
