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.

    • Recently, Bybit shockingly announced the suspension of its services to the UK region due to strict regulatory measures by the region. This action by Bybit could further discourage crypto adoption, which is necessary for developing this industry. Strict regulations have continued to deprive crypto access/adoption to many users for a while. The regulatory bodies normally claim their action is in the interest of their citizens (to protect them from unsuspecting activities that could harm them) while some exchange feel this action is a sinister attack on them so the decision to suspend their service to such region. One question boggled my mind; i) Why can't exchange blend to those regulations? iii) Why are other exchanges surviving in such a region? The crypto industry is still young as such we expect some challenges and differences in opinions but finding a common ground that will ensure its development and growth should be paramount. That is why I feel exchanges and regulatory bodies need to work together for the betterment of this industry. While waiting for that scenario to play out which other exchange will you suggest for the users affected by this decision to use and what are your opinions on this strict regulations

    • Dow, Nasdaq 100 and CAC40 struggle in early trading Indices are under pressure again as oil prices and bond yields continue to rise. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 28 September 2023 11:38 Dow eats into Wednesday’s recovery The index briefly slumped to its lowest level since early June yesterday, heading towards the 33,230 level. A rebound from the lows helped to avoid another weak close but the general bearish move remains firmly in place. More losses target the May lows around 32,700. Buyers will be looking for a move back above 33,827 and the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) to suggest that a low has formed. Intraday movement has been capped by the 50-hour SMA over the past week. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq 100 bounce fizzles The index managed to eke out a small rally yesterday off the lows, but has struggled to push higher in early trading this morning. This has put the price back above the August low of 14,553, so if this holds buyers may attempt to wrest control and drive the index back towards 15,000. A close back below 14,550 would mark a bearish development, potentially open the way towards the June lows at 14,230. Source: ProRealTime CAC40 stuck below previous support After falling just below the 7100 support zone earlier in the week, the index has managed to avoid any further steep losses for the time being. The March lows at 6900 beckon in the event of a fresh drop, while on the upside 7100 could act as resistance in the short-term now it has been broken as support. A longer-term bullish view would require a close back above 7200. Source: ProRealTime
