Transfer investments quickly and easily

How does it work?

To transfer your existing investments to IG you need to have an IG share dealing account. Don't have a share dealing account yet? Learn more about share dealing with IG.

One form to complete

Once you've opened a share dealing account with us you can download the relevant form below. It only takes a few minutes to complete, return it to us at: IG, Cannon Bridge House, 25 Dowgate Hill, London, EC4R 2YA

To avoid any delays when transferring US holdings, please ensure you have completed the relevant tax forms.

We advise you to check our shares list (PDF) to ensure we offer the securities in your portfolio. If you cannot find a particular security within this list, please contact the helpdesk to check if we are able to offer it.

What happens next?

Your shares will appear in the 'Open Positions' panel within the platform as soon as they have been transferred. Your ISAs will appear in your ISA account.

How long does it take?

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

We anticipate the majority of transfers to complete within 3-6 weeks, however this can vary as transfers are dependent on the transferring broker and beyond our control.

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.
