If IG went was liquidated what protection is there for share accounts?



What protection is in place for clients with high value share accounts with IG in the case of IG being liquidated? Are the shares held in clients names? What would be the process if getting access to ones share certificates in this situation?

Hi @Dv8or

Thanks for reaching out, 

Client assets are segregated from IG assets, for retail clients these would be returned. You can learn more about this from the following link: 


We offer share certificate rematerialisation, you would need to send that request to helpdesk.uk@ig.com and our transfers team would take it from there. 

All the best,

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
