How to open your IG Smart Portfolio

Tell us about your financial goals and pick your investment style. Investing made simple.

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.
Remember, past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Every investment decision should be based on a thorough analysis of market conditions and the prospective investment itself.

How it works

  • We ask about you

    Whether you’re saving for retirement, school fees or just simply looking for a better return on your savings, we’ll tailor your portfolio to you. Just answer a few simple questions about your investment goals, and we’ll get you up and running.

  • We build your portfolio

    After we’ve learnt about your investing goals, we’ll show you the portfolio with the best mix of investments to meet your targets.

    See how we expect each portfolio to perform over time, and you can easily change which one to invest in.

  • Deposit your funds

    When your portfolio is set up, you can choose to fund it by debit card, PayPal or bank transfer. We’ll invest the funds as soon as they reach your account.

  • Top up at any time

    Add funds to your investment whenever you like – you can even set up a standing order to do it automatically. Meanwhile, we’ll rebalance your portfolio as needed, so you don’t have to.

  • Check up on your portfolio

    See how your portfolio is performing at any time on our intuitive online platform or mobile app. You can also switch between portfolios or withdraw your money without charge. Simple.
