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

    • This is why I think using volatility as an important input is a much better way..... It's not about predicting the markets, it's about proactively preparing for what maybe around the corner. Follow me on twitter for more updates. Took me all night to model that price action and it paid off “ biggly”.    Take care out there  CA  
    • A higher than normal spread generally indicates one of two things, high volatility in the market or low liquidity due to out-of-hours trading. Before news events, or during big shock (Brexit, US Elections), spreads can widen greatly. A low spread means there is a small difference between the bid and the ask price. From google
    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
