How do I open an IG SIPP?

There are two ways to invest in the IG SIPP – you can either choose your own investments with a share dealing SIPP, or you can let our experts make the decisions on your behalf with an IG Smart Portfolio SIPP.

To open a share dealing SIPP, you first need to open an IG share dealing account. Once you’ve done this, simply log in to My IG and click ‘add another account’, then select ‘add SIPP’. When you add a SIPP to your IG account, you’ll be taken to James Hay’s website to complete your application. James Hay Partnership administers our SIPPs and will handle all of your account administration. Please note that the SIPP application form is not mobile-friendly.

If you’d like to open an IG Smart Portfolio SIPP, you’ll need to create an IG Smart Portfolio account and select 'SIPP' as your investment option. Once you complete our risk-profiling questionnaire, we’ll suggest an IG Smart Portfolio that’s right for your risk profile. You’ll then be taken to James Hay’s website to complete your SIPP application.
