DRP and share transfer

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

As DRP is not part of the service offered by IG, it's actually more expensive when dividends are paid out and not reinvested. Therefore, I'd like to be able to transfer my shares to another provider. I've looked for the SRN, but does not seem available. Is it possible to transfer shares out of IG?

 

Thanks!

Hi 

 

I apologise that the feature you require is not available on the IG share dealing platform. We have been looking at various enhancements to complete our offering dividend with reinvestment being one of them. 

 

I appreciate that you would like to transfer your holdings away from IG, whilst I can say we are looking at introducing these new features I am not able to provide a time frame for when they will be implemented. 

 

If you wish to proceed with the transfer we can action that free of charge and you will be able to close the account without any closure fees. In order to initiate the transfer you will need to complete a stock transfer form with the broker you are transferring your holdings to, that way we can be in direct contact and provide all the relevant information.

 

Thanks,

Chris

As fairly new to investing I missed that point and have told my partner to go to a different broker for that reason. I will stay if they do come up with it in the next couple of months. I hope this helps

How come it is more expensive? Would you please elaborate on that?

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
