What is an IG Smart Portfolio?

An IG Smart Portfolio is a fully managed, broadly diversified portfolio with exposure to many global markets such as fixed income and equity, along with alternative investments such as gold and property.

We build our portfolios using market-leading iShares ETFs, and manage them using asset allocation models devised by BlackRock – the world’s leading asset manager.

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.

Fully managed, fully online

IG Smart Portfolios are expertly managed portfolios designed to deliver long-term returns while keeping costs low.

By drawing on BlackRock’s asset allocation models we can provide institutional-quality portfolios that cater to five distinct risk profiles, ranging from conservative to aggressive. When you open your account, we’ll ask you a series of questions to determine your risk appetite and help you find a portfolio that’s right for your profile.

Your portfolio is then fully managed by our experts, who’ll rebalance it as market conditions change to keep it performing in line with your goals. You’ll have complete transparency, all the time. You’ll know your total cost of ownership (TCO) before you invest, and you’re free to check on your portfolio’s progress 24 hours a day through our online platform.

Please note that when we help you to find a portfolio, we do not consider all of your circumstances. We only suggest a portfolio which investors with the same risk profile as you might typically invest in. If you’re seeking full financial advice, we recommend you speak to an independent financial advisor.
