See how our fees compare to a leading UK provider, and find out how much faster your wealth could grow.


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.

Compare fees

We’ve created IG Smart Portfolios to offer you an affordable, transparent and innovative way to invest. We have a low fee structure that won’t significantly eat into your returns, and our commitment to clarity on charges means you’ll know the total cost of ownership (TCO) before you invest.

Annual total cost of ownership (TCO) for a £100,000 investment
IG Smart Portfolio 0.75%1 £750
A leading UK provider 2.10%2 £2100
Annual savings for an IG client 1.34% £1340

What do low fees mean for you?

By saving you money on fees, we’ll be able to reinvest a greater portion of the earnings your IG Smart Portfolio generates. These past earnings will then be able to generate their own earnings – a process known as compounding that can have a significant impact on the value of your portfolio over the long term. Take a look at our graph below:

If you invest £100,000 in an IG Smart Portfolio and the same amount with a leading UK wealth manager 2, your wealth could potentially grow by nearly £35,000 more with us after 15 years. Over a 30-year period, your wealth could potentially grow by over £148,000 more by investing with us.

With these additional savings you could cover your children’s university fees, pay for numerous family holidays, or put down a deposit on a second home. It could even be the difference between retiring on time and retiring early.

Our low fees are just one of many reasons to invest with us. Visit the IG Smart Portfolios page to find out more about the benefits of our service.

Compare performance

IG Smart Portfolios are built using asset-allocation models from BlackRock, and are tailored to suit five distinct risk profiles.

Four of our five risk profiles have proven track records, based on the historical performance of established BlackRock models.

The risk-seeking ‘aggressive’ model was created by BlackRock exclusively for IG, so does not have a long enough track record to be considered.

In each case, the BlackRock models have consistently out-performed industry-accepted benchmarks since their inception in 2014.

1 This includes a tiered IG management fee, an average TER of 0.19% for the ETFs within your Smart Portfolio, and 0.06% for the estimated impact of dealing spread costs. Correct at 30 April 2019.
