Is transfer from another ISA provider into a Smart Portfolio ISA possible?


Recommended Posts

I think the Smart Portfolios are great but I am trying to find out if I can I transfer an ISA with another provider to IG to set up and invest in a Smart Portfolio ISA?  This doesn't appear to be ruled out anywhere, but if it is possible, it is not clear how to do it.  Anyone know?? (BTW  Investing in the smart portfolios outside of an ISA or SIPP (as I do) is a real pain from a CGT point of view as no help is given by IG in matching up the multitude of small trades to calculate gains. )

If you are transferring from one ISA to another there will be no CGT on the transfer or subsequent sales showing gains. Just tell Smart Portfolio ISA what you want to do and they should point you in the right direction

Hi @Bman

You can request to transfer your ISA that is with a different provider to IG in the My IG area. Select: Live accounts > ISA transfers. There's an online form to fill out then our transfers team will contact your current provider to arrange the transfer.

The cash from the transfer will be invested right away once it is allocated to your Smart Portfolio ISA. If you want to choose when the funds are invested then I suggest transferring your ISA to an IG share dealing ISA then moving the cash across to your IG Smart Portfolio ISA when you are ready to invest the cash.

Apologies for hijacking this thread but I've asked about converting my standard IG share account into an ISA. I haven't used my ISA allowance this year, and would like to do this instead of opening a new ISA an investing this late in the tax year.

The helpdesk have explained the process and cost, but I can't pin them down on whether they will transfer at original trade price or market close - I want to retain my trading P&L in the ISA account to avoid the tax, otherwise there's little point!

Thanks for any guidance you can give me on that.

    • Thank you. The whole episode has been disastrous from the start and there looks to be no let up as Johnson is expected tonight to announce a 4 week lockdown extension again using false models and bad science as 'reasons'. Very sorry to hear of your wife's vax complications, twitter is awash with similar stories but MSM ignores it all. The AZ seems particularly worrisome, the US won't use it at all (they donated their tranche to the 3rd world) but nearly all in the UK get it. Most of whom will already have had contact with covid and have natural immunity anyway. As in the Russel Brand video, MSM does not have the right to just dismiss anything they don't like the sound of as 'conspiracy theories' and completely ignore them. Eminent scientists being de-platformed, astronomical NHS waiting lists, undiagnosed life threatening illnesses flooding A+E, complete loss of faith in major institutions (WHO, FDA, CDC, NHS, etc.), 37% fewer small businesses in the US. The damage being done is appalling and there is no end in sight.   .          
    • Yep - If the major cycle working out since 2016 repeats as its done for the past 225 years then the USA Indices are UP, UP,UP until the mid 2030's - corrections will be nothing like 2000-2009 corrections  Although chart is up to date - I wrote the below pre 2015 (can't remember exactly when) - as an absolute min I'd expect 22-25,000 for the SP500 to end on in 2034
    • Have to say Casey, your contributions on the on going Covid story (monumental ballsup) have been a tonic. Was sceptical for sometime but am more sympathetic to your premise regarding the pandemic and the reaction to it. Vaccines are such good PR, it is a shame that the general population are being used as guinea pigs for DNA altering drugs with as yet unknown and potentially damaging long-term consequences and side effects. Doubly bazarre,the governments of the planet are prepared to take the risk in the name of exigency. AZ is particularly dirty and incomplete, if not down right dangerous as to be considered a lethal weapon to some of the unfortunates unlucky enough to experience the more unpleasant side effects of being injected with it. Such is political expediency and exigency at the altar of public health. Forgive the unPC comments, but they are borne from experience, as my wife has had long-term reactions to the "cure". Most folk don't want to hear anything but the popular narrative, even if it vere's heartily away from some inconvenient truths. So thank you Casey keep up the good work, it's appreciated.
