Question

As per regulation a person can only contribute to ISA account as long as he is a resident of UK.

But can continue to hold shares / funds in ISA account even after he moves of of UK.

My questions are:

1) Can I operate my IG ISA account from outside UK with existing funds? Does IG app and website access would be available?

2) If needed can i transfer funds from IG account to bank outside UK?

Has anyone in this forum has personal experience.

My questions are: When a person is has moved out of UK and is no longer UK resident, in that case:

1) Can I operate my IG ISA account from outside UK with existing funds? Does IG app and website access would be available?

2) If needed can i transfer funds from IG account to bank outside UK?

Has anyone in this forum has personal experience.

Thanks

Hey, 

Thanks for your post. 

1) Once you have declared to IG that you've moved to another country you will not be able to pay any money into the account or buy more shares. You will be able to sell your shares though and withdraw funds. 

2) Depending on how long you've had your account with us will have an impact on where the funds can be sent to. For example with very new clients you can only send funds back to the source you funded with. Reach put to us via email if you need us to check your account and let you know which withdrawal methods are possible.

All the best

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
