Can you actually open a SIPP account with IG?


SammyM

Question

When I try to "add an account" and then click on SIPP, I get the message below. Does this mean that new clients can't yet open a SIPP account? Do you know when the new SIPP solution will be available? "Add account - IG SIPP - Coming Soon - A new way to invest for your retirement is coming soon. We will let you know as soon as you can open an IG SIPP."

And today I went through the whole account starting up process only to discover that I can open a trading account, but not a SIPP - despite being advertised.

No dates yet. James Hay stopped taking new clients from IG in October 2020 and IG have been promising to give details of a new provider since then. Despite saying in January it would be a few months, there is still no news. They also agreed to update the website but I'm not aware that they've done this yet. Beginning to think Interactive Investor might be a better option.

Hey all, 

Regretfully, we’re currently not able to take on any new SIPP applications. We hope to offer new SIPP accounts soon and are working on contracting with a new provider.

Once we’ve established a solution, notifications will be provided either via email and/or banners on our website, and you’ll then be able to apply for a new SIPP account online through your My IG dashboard.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Well - by my reckoning it’s now 8 months since IG stopped taking new SIPP clients. It does make me wonder whether they really want to continue operating in this space. The delay in completing negotiations must be due to management setting this as a low priority as even the most incompetent could have come up with a solution by now. 
Or is there a hidden agenda and they are negotiating a sale of this part of the business?

Apparently not - after 9 months wai I'm looking at alternatives ( this is for my daughter) and so far I'm veering towards Interactive Investor www.ii.com . They appear to have similar functionality and their fee structure is competitive. Does anyone have direct experience of them?

Additionally, there are many online resources, courses, and communities that can help guide you in learning how to trade cryptocurrency.
    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.
