To IG staff members



Will someone from IG please respond to my problem with the conversion of shares that I hold in GPAQ to HOFV. For the last 2 weeks emails to customer support and posts on this forum have been ignored. On 2nd July each share that I own in GPAQ should have been converted to 1.42 shares of the new company HOFV (after the SPAC merger). However, this conversion has not taken place on the IG platform (despite the fact that every other broker in the world has managed it) which leaves me unable to buy, sell or have access to the funds tied up in this asset. Up until now I have received no acknowledgement or explanation for this problem and no guidance as to when it might be resolved. In the 2 weeks that HOFV has been trading on the Nasdaq the share price has gone from $12.7 to $5 and being unable to trade this stock (which I am supposed to own) during this time has cost me a lot of money. I am shocked and disappointed with the behaviour of IG, a broker which up until 2 weeks ago I was recommending to other people. I have to admit that I am thoroughly fed up with this whole situation and its time for IG to either give me access to the stock that I own (with the correct conversion), or give me the money back that I paid for the asset in the first place.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
