Transfer investments quickly and easily

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

Your capital is at risk

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.

    Transfer your share dealing portfolio, ISA or SIPP 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 12,000 international shares in local denominations, and pay just 0.5% to convert to your chosen base currency

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

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.
