Transfer shares from employers SIP to IG share dealing account



Hi there,

I'm looking to transfer some shares from an Equateplus account to my IG share dealing account. Upon initiating the request, because the shares were obtained via my employers SIP, it says to ask my provider to initiate the transfer.

They require some information and upon doing a search, I found a very similar question where for some of the answers given were to use my account number for the SWIFT number as well as something else. This is not accepted as it can't be validated by the Equateplus website.

The information they ask for is as follows.

Account number. Is this the same as the Account ID?

Broker Email Address, I believe this to be transfers@ig.com

Clearing information, Please ask you bank/brokerage which settlement and clearing information is required in order to receive your shares. Settlement and clearing information typically includes the SWIFT address of your bank/brokerage as well as a local depositary ID such as Crest ID for UK securities.

Brokerage code - Bank Code or ABA number


Brokerage Name, City, Street and Postal Code - I have IG Index and the London address.

If I type IG Index into the name field of the brokerage form on Equateplus, it suggests the following information but as the address is different, I wasn't sure whether to proceed




Appreciate any help.

    • Here's a catchy tune to have in your head while you 'just buy the fekking dip'.     Push it!
    • Hi RFSmithers, Thanks for the tips... But when I searched for trusted "ECN" broker in Australia for CFD Index trading, IG Market is among the returned result! So with what you suggested and what the search result I got, IG Market seems to be still the one to stick with for CFD Index trading. Please note that, regarding the market trend is to be against your trade or not, from my experience so far, I think it is really up to you on when to enter the trade, for example: - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is flat with no trend, then it is just like you jump into the calm water and then you make the big splash which could be against yourself - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is on trending, where: if you enter against the trend, then you will be eaten alive from there - FULL STOP - Period; however if you enter on riding the trend, then you will be picking up the fruits along the way through...   So with the above, to summarise, it seems to me that (of course - correct me if wrong): 1) IG Market is still the trusted ECN broker in Australia for CFD Index trading 2) A trader needs to know when to enter the trade to ensure s/he to ride on the trend to pick fruits, but not to be eaten alive.   Cheers Victor           What do you think? Cheers.
