Authority to trade complex products - leveraged ETFs


I have  well-established retail account with IG and can trade leveraged ETFs such as UPRO and TMF in both my share dealing and SIP accounts.
I recently recommended IG to a friend who has opened an account and completed from W8-BEN but gets a warning message about complex products and cannot buy the leveraged ETFs he wants.
What doe he need to do to get authorisation to trade these products?
Thanks for any help.

Is there some way to filter ETFs to see which ones IG considers "Complex Products"?
I can't see anything in the ETF screener.

Are there any VIX related ETFs that people CAN trade without complex products approval?
Wanted UVXY but that is not allowed.

    • In the UK, the median age of death from Covid is: - 81 for men - 85 for women (source: Office For National Statistics, 14 Oct 2020) The average life expectancy in the UK is: - 80 for men - 83 for women. (ZUBY:  @ZubyMusic)   If you take away the 95% aged and moribund you are left with just 1 death/million (Ireland), that's some pandemic 🤔 Meanwhile, short vid on mad teachers fear mongering plus some actual scientific facts, how did we get here?  
    • Dow approaching triple top. Through it and higher, or classic triple top reversal?
    • Hi all, On average are Forex markets more suited to mean reversion strategies than say indices or commodities? And do you choose your market type based on the conditions at the time or do you steer clear of some on purpose? Thanks for your insight
