Has anyone successfully done this, or have any advice or tips?

From what I understand, Robinhood want new broker to initiate the transfer, but every new UK broker has told me transfer needs to be initiated with Robinhood.

Catch 22!

Hi @Jules_B,

You can find details on how to transfer shares into IG. If you have an active IG share dealing or ISA account, you can request to transfer your personal shares or ISAs to IG from another UK-based broker from My IG.

For Europe-based or US-based brokers to IG, you will need to contact your broker you wish to transfer from to initiate the request. They’ll guide you accordingly and contact our transfers team.

More details here.

Robinhood might be processing transfers as per US broker to broker regulations and procedures, but unfortunately we will need them to contact our transfer team.

I hope that this information helps.

All the best - Arvin

Thanks, Arvin

But therein lies the problem!

Robinhood insist on new broker initiating the transfer. I'll try and reach out to them again, but so far they have not budged on this.


Hi @Jules_B,

I understand, you can reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com or use the live chat feature on the IG website. I believe that their answer would be similar though. Alternatively you can try transfers@ig.com but this email is to send transfer documents over.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin

Hey, jamowale

Sounds like we're in exactly the same boat!

I've been going round in circles with multiple brokers trying to figure this out, but keep getting the same answer.

It appears that no-one is that bothered about doing the work, and just sends canned responses.

Can't believe this isn't possible, and doesn't come up more often!

Likely a different story if you go to a private broker with millions in investments, I imagine.

    • #GBPCAD: Pullback From Key LevelGBPCAD reached a major horizontal resistance.The price has nicely reacted to that, forming a bearish engulfing candle on 4H time frame.I expect a retracement from the underlined structure.Goals: 1.68 / 1.677
    • #EURUSD: Important Breakout 🇪🇺🇺🇸   Bulls push 🟢EURUSD heavily after yesterday's Interest Rate Decision and FOMC. The price has successfully broken and closed above a solid horizontal supply cluster.   The next solid resistance that I see is 1.099 - 1.103 area. Probabilities will be high that it is the next goal for buyers.   For those, who missed entries, I strictly recommend waiting for a pullback first. I will post an update later on.

    • The Nasdaq’s gains are starkly contrasted with relatively weak performances this year from US index peers the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average (Wall Street 30), suggesting some sector rotation has occurred. Source: Bloomberg   Indices Nasdaq-100 S&P 500 Dow Jones Industrial Average Nasdaq Technical analysis  Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Monday 20 March 2023  The Nasdaq 100 index, after being out of favour in 2022, has managed to produce double digit price gains within the first quarter of 2023. These gains are starkly contrasted with relatively weak performances this year from US index peers the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average (Wall Street 30). The failure of smaller financial counters Silvergate, First Republic and Silicon Valley Banks, has sparked fears around a mini banking crisis prompting weakness in larger banking peers which make up some of the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial index constituents. In turn there is a suggestion that we are now seeing some sector rotation by investors back into technology stocks found within the Nasdaq 100 index. Relative strength comparison: Nasdaq 100 vs S&P 500   Source: IG The chart above shows a ratio comparison of the Nasdaq 100 (numerator) and the S&P500 (denominator) from the beginning of 2022 up until now (20 March 2023). The red trend line (arrow) highlights the downtrend in this ratio which reflects a significant underperformance of the Nasdaq against the S&P500 in 2022. The blue arrow highlights the upward trend of this ratio which began in early 2023. The upward trend now prevalent, highlights the Nasdaq 100’s outperformance of the S&P 500. Relative strength comparison: Nasdaq 100 vs Dow Jones Industrial Average   Source: IG Similarly, to our previous chart (Nasdaq100 / SP500) the above chart of the Nasdaq 100 (numerator) and Dow Jones Industrial Average (denominator) ratio highlights these same trends, i.e. in 2022 Nasdaq 100 consistently underperformed the Dow, while in 2023 that trend appears to have reversed. Year to date index moves compared   Source: IG Albeit from a lower base, the Nasdaq 100 has outperformed its benchmark peers the S&P500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average significantly in 2023. Nasdaq 100 – Technical analysis Source: IG As highlighted in a previous article, the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line) has recently crossed above the 200-day simple moving average (200MA) (blue line). This moving average crossover is commonly referred to as the ‘golden cross’ in technical analysis terms. The suggestion is that it marks the beginning of a new longer-term uptrend in a market, in this case the Nasdaq 100. While we have seen some short-term gains to follow in the index, the Nasdaq 100 does now also trade in overbought territory. The overbought signal suggests that trend followers looking for long entry might be afforded an opportunity to do so through either a near term price pullback or sideways consolidation.   Source: IG The price break above resistance at 12350, now sees this level as possible support, should a pullback ensue. Traders supporting the long-term uptrend might look for long entry on a pullback to either this level or trend line (solid black line) support. Preferably a pullback would need to end with a bullish reversal (candle) pattern. In this scenario, 12900 and 13190 provide initial resistance targets, while a close below the reversal low might be used as a stop loss indication for the trade.
