ISA - cannot buy certain stocks


Recommended Posts

Under ISA I cannot buy certain names, example: BZUN, BABA, NNDM to name a few.

When trying to purchase these on my Stocks & Shares ISA, I see following message.

INSTRUMENT NOT TAX WRAPPER ENABLED
Sorry, this instrument is not available to trade on the tax wrapper associated to your account

The worst is the fact that IG does not flag this until the very end, when you're trying to place an order.

Can you please assist and tell me how can I buy these in tax efficient way? Do I need to move part of my portfolio to a different ISA provider?

To be fair, it's nothing to do with IG - for whatever reason those instruments do not not meet HMRC rules to be included in an ISA, and so it doesn't matter who the ISA provider is. There are a lot of stocks/ETFs that are simply ineligible for inclusion in ISAs

As fletch says - if you have a SIPP you "might" be able to place them in there rather than an ISA

I made the decision 10 years ago to only trade ETF's in my ISA after experiencing similar problems back then with a different ISA/SIPP provider

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
