IG Smart Portfolios - Performance

We believe that transparency is key. IG Smart Portfolios were launched on 28 February 2017, so we are proud to report over two years' worth of performance data. Toggle between our five portfolios below to see how your investment would have grown in an IG Smart Portfolio compared to an index of our competitors.

The returns data shown before 28 February 2017 is reported by BlackRock, gross of fees. Monthly returns data thereafter is reported by IG, net of fees. Data runs to 31 October 2019.






BlackRock performance

IG Smart Portfolios are built using asset allocation from the dedicated investment team at BlackRock, the largest asset manager in the world.

In the table below you can see the historic performance for each portfolio up to the end of 2017 (including ETF fees, but not including IG management fees or transaction costs), and compare it to industry-accepted benchmarks.

Our conservative, moderate, balanced and growth portfolios are all based on allocations that have performance history going back to 31 July 2014, while our aggressive portfolio was created for us by BlackRock, and was launched on 28 February 2017.

This is not the past performance of IG Smart Portfolios. This table compares the past performance of the BlackRock asset allocation used by IG Smart Portfolios against industry-accepted benchmarks – the ARC Private Client Indices. In the table below you can see which BlackRock allocation each IG Smart Portfolio is based on.

BlackRock performance is sourced from BlackRock and is based on total returns, in sterling, with income reinvested. It is net of ETF total expense ratios (TER), but gross of transactions costs and management fees. ARC Private Client Indices use the net-of-fees performance from many of the UK’s leading investment managers and may be subject to revisions. For more information, go to

The inception date for the BlackRock asset allocations was 15 July 2014. However, ARC produce benchmark data on a monthly basis, meaning the table only displays data from 31 July 2014.

Remember, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
