IG Smart Portfolios

Discover a simple, low-cost way to invest, and start working towards the future you want.

IG Smart Portfolios are expertly managed, globally diversified and tailored to your risk profile – all for a fraction of the cost of traditional wealth managers.

Remember 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.

Why choose an IG Smart Portfolio?

Low cost

Our transparent management fee starts at just 0.65%. And the more you invest, the lower it gets.


Our portfolios cater to five distinct risk profiles from conservative to aggressive, to suit a wide range of risk appetites.


Know your total cost of ownership (TCO) before you invest, and see how your portfolio’s performing at any time.


Your investments are spread across a range of asset classes, sectors and regions, in a way that suits your risk profile.


It’s quick and easy to get set up, with a fully online application process. And you can start investing with as little as £500.

Expert portfolio management

We’ve partnered with BlackRock, the world’s leading asset manager, to make sure your investments are in the best possible hands.
