Is My IG account restricted by the regulations of where I live?


CKCathnott

Question

I currently reside in Germany and plan to start a live IG trading account in a few months. As I understand it, my account has to be opened with the German office www.ig.com/de However I plan to relocate to Barbados in the next 2 years, my question: how can I continue trading with my account?

1. Do I open a new account under IG international and transfer my funds?

2. Will there be a change in rules for the use of an International account, how will the new account be impacted?

Looking forward to your response.

Hi @CKCathnott,

Thank you for your message. Effectively you will need to reapply with our international office. Each of our offices are regulated by local regulators. Therefore, you will need to sign a new user agreement relevant to your new region legislation.

You can refer to this page for furhter information https://www.ig.com/en/welcome-page, you will only have access to CFD with an international account as opposed to a German account.

I hope that it helps!

All the best - Arvin

    • I believe DOG, as a memecoin is already quite popular and making a buzz. But as to your question, there are always new entries into the crypto space and when a reputable CEX like Bitget list it, it will substantially expose it to new communities and potential investors...    So all in all, I believe it will be good for DOG and it's future prospects! 
    • Sometimes ago, there was a CEX offering something similar but it was for new users and I even got to know about it a bit too late so I just didn't bother.   I think it's always great to see a CEX like Bitget offering this kinda promo for both new and existing users...    Thanks OP for the early heads up 👍
    • I saw Taiko on my TL yesterday but I didn't particularly pay much attention to it... But it seem they are on a good path and have forged some reputable partnerships along the way...  I have to say it's association with big guns of the industry like OKX, Kucoin etc makes it a good prospect and if you can get some of the coins early in the Bitget Pre-Market trading as you said, it will probably be a good investment in a long run!
