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?

    • Some excuse is needed for a pullback ...
    • The spike down in indices in the last hour was the same ol' trade war news, China stating they are less optimistic than the US and feel they have been mislead by recent talks where they felt they had agreement over a rollback of tariffs that the US now say is not the case. After 18 months of this you should be use to it by now. 
    • Dax, Nikkei and FTSE100 remain below recent (past 2 weeks) turning points and we have seen an interesting recent bearish candle in play on US large caps, a potential spike and retrace back down, which could signal rally exhaustion.  In the case of the Dow and Nasdaq this occurred with an overshoot of the 4H chart rally channel and in the case of the Nasdaq also the Daily and Monthly long term resistance trend lines (overshoot and quick retrace being a particular signal of an exhaustion phase).  In the case of the SP500 this has occurred with a hit right on the Daily resistance trend line and rejection, so far at least.  As I have mentioned before: with volume relatively weak and seemingly in a down trend; and with COT net long positions weak and weakening (not what one would expect of a breakout rally); and with Gold/Silver rallying; and with NMD at the turn points on all markets and as USDJPY has also taken a similar bearish hit; the odds of a bearish phase are good and the risk reward is decent. I am already Short Dax and FTSE100 off the previous turns but money where my mouth is this time on SP500, as the exposure is tiny, I am Short off the hit and turn on the daily trend line with tight stops just above.
