Transfer investments quickly and easily

Open a share dealing account and transfer your existing shareholdings and ISAs, with no charge for electronic shares.1

Your capital is at risk. The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in.

    Transfer your share dealing portfolio or ISA quickly and simply, with no charge for electronic shares1

  • Grow your portfolio for less

    Zero commission on US shares, and just £3 commission on UK shares, when you trade shares three times in the previous month.2

  • FX conversion from just 0.5%

    Buy and sell more than 13,000+ international shares in local denominations, and pay just 0.5% to convert to your chosen base currency

How long it takes

There's only one short form we need you to complete, and then we'll take care of the rest.

We aim to complete your transfer within 14 days, but this is dependent on your transferring broker.

Open your account

It's free to open an account, normally takes less than five minutes, and there's no obligation to fund or trade.

1 Physical share dematerialisation fee is £100 (inclusive of VAT) per certificate. Electronic shares are transferred free of charge. IG SIPPs are administered by James Hay, who charge a £205 annual fee and may charge for transferring investments not currently held in a SIPP. You may be out of the market for a period while your transfer takes place.
2 Trade in your share dealing account three or more times in the previous month to qualify for our best commission rates.
3 Changing your currency conversion settings influences the amount of commission you pay. Our team reviews these changes on a monthly basis, so it may take some time to update your account. Please be aware that changing from converting 'instant' to 'manual' means that you'll no longer qualify for commission-free trading.
