ETFs: a low-cost, flexible way to invest

Track the performance of indices, sectors, commodities and more with our range of exchange traded funds (ETFs). Our screener can help you find the right ETFs for your strategy.

The value of investments can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Execution-only and fully managed accounts

Buy and sell ETFs with our share dealing service, or let our experts invest on your behalf with a readymade IG Smart Portfolio

Huge range of markets

We offer thousands of ETFs through our share dealing, ISA and SIPP accounts, enabling you to find a product to suit any investment strategy

Low currency conversion fees

ETF screener

Filter more than 6000 global ETFs by asset class, country, performance or ISA eligibility, so you can find the right one for your portfolio

Access leading ETF providers
