Transferring US listed shares into IG ISA from recently exercised sharesave/SAYE scheme


lwycombe

Question

Hi

Asking if it's possible to transfer sharesave/SAYE acquired shares directly into an IG stocks and shares ISA without having to sell the shares and reinvesting, shares currently held electronically with Computershare.  Value of shares is less than £20k, so under the annual ISA threshold.  I'm inclined to keep these shares but would like to do so within an ISA wrapper and avoid Bed and ISA and FX charges.

I know UK government regs allow direct transfer of shares into a stocks and shares ISA if performed within 90 days of acquisition, but do IG offer this facility, with the added complication that these are $ listed?

thanks

    • This is the E1 contract from an IG France account. All the best, KoketsoIG
    • Dear @cate, We're sorry to hear you didn't like the new platform. The old platform is being decommissioned, so we recommend using the new one. You can find the same markets by using the search function. For example, when I typed 'crude oil' on both platforms. To select the desired contract on the new platform, simply click on the market you want and then choose from the dropdown menu. The E1 contract is only available for Europe accounts, not UK accounts on both platforms. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • Hi, I've been holding onto the old platform as long as I could, because I really don't like the new one,  but now it's being decommissioned I'm trying to use the new one finally. ☹️  On the old platform I had a choice of WTI either as a 1 euro or a £1 contract, and the same for Gold. But when I search on the new platform all I get is the  £1 contract as well as an absolute ton of ETFs. It doesn't even say it's the £1 version, it just calls itself "spot gold" which is a bit confusing because it looks as though you might be buying a full lot, not just a mini contract. Can anyone tell me how to find the 1 euro contracts, or are they just not available on the new platform? Many thanks, Cate
