How long does it take to transfer shares from another broker to my account at IG ?

If I sell shares,  how long does it take to receive my funds in my account?

Transfers usually take 4-6 weeks but it depends on how cooperative the broker you're transferring from is. 


Please know our settlement period works on a T+2 (+3 for US shares) basis. This means the cash for these shares won't settle on your account the day you sell them but two working days.later. The funds should be available to withdraw by close of business 2 working days late. Please note that if you want to trade with the funds before they settle you can. 

All the best

I was planning to transfer shares from my current ISA provider as well. In this case, would the shares get sold first by my provider before being bought back on IG, and therefore would I be out of the market for upto 4-6 weeks? I am planning to transfer a single index ETF holding (UK registered) only.

If that is indeed the case, would there be a way of knowing when the selling happens (like email notifications) and when the buying happens so that I can temporarily hedge that scenario somewhere else?

    • Because of this, it's wise for traders to thoroughly investigate exchanges before choosing one. I exclusively deal with cryptocurrency exchanges that have declared proof of reserve in the wake of the unfortunate events that saw some go bankrupt and others hack. Because of what I've heard traders say about Bitget and the fact that it met my requirements, I had to start using it right away. Therefore, I'd advise DYOR to choose whatever best meets your needs.
    • The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. You may well of heard of the ‘Santa Rally’. It’s a commonly discussed stock market theory. It is the basic concept that the stock markets, particularly the major indices, show positive returns on the run up to Christmas and the New year. Myth or legend? We look at the stats.  As you can see from the below table the FTSE100 rose in price in 12 of the 15 years. That’s 80% of the time. The average difference was 1.95% https://moneysandi.com/the-santa-rally-christmas-growth-in-the-stock-market/ Anyone had any experience of trading this?  #trading #money #trader #investing #investment #crypto #stockmarket #stocks #business #invest #entrepreneur #finance #investor #daytrader #daytrading #trade  #wallstreet #wealth #santarally #finance
    • It all boils down to the exchange's dedication to protect customers' assets. Apparently these exchanges that haven't recorded any hacks for 5+ years of functioning like the case of the first exchange you mentioned, are working behind the scene to make it happen. HTX and the likes need to do more and save the industry’s reputation already.
