When is an asset not an asset?


Recommended Posts

In their online account opening blurb IG state that they will pay a bonus to new clients based on the value of ASSETS transferred to them. However in practice it transpires that the amount of the bonus is calculated NOT on the assets moved but rather on the value of the securities involved. I find this sharp practice particularly as cash transferred is likely to be invested, generating income for IG.

Hi  - You can see the info referring to transfering investments here >> https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/transfer-investments with the relevant terms and conditions stating no cash transfers here >> https://a.c-dn.net/c/content/dam/publicsites/1486991655335/igcom/uk/files/education/170200_IGM_UK_Reward%20for%20Transfer.pdf

 

The reason for this is that we want to safe guard against people who would just fund their account, claim the reward, and then withdraw their fund immediately. With a stock transfer this would be a lot less likely to happen. I hope this clarifies things.

    • hahaha, from 1 per 100,000 to 2 per 100,000 for the whole of England over the course of a week = ''RAPIDLY GROWING''  ffs. This is beyond insanity.  
    • Imagination and remembrance: what role should historical epidemiology play in a world bewitched by mathematical modelling of COVID-19 and other epidemics? | SpringerLink Jordan Schachtel  @JordanSchachtel  9h ''I opposed lockdowns instinctively (bc they are totalitarian insanity), & after reading pandemic materials from CDC, WHO, etc & finding no basis for lockdowns, it became obvious these orgs were engaging in political science. This paper reinforces position.'' "Every established respiratory pandemic of the last 130 years has caused seasonal waves of infection and has culminated in viral endemicity. Despite this robust observation, initial models of COVID-19 excluded this possibility".                                                            ------------------------------------------------------------------   Beijing's Useful Idiots | ZeroHedge ''Bear in mind that in the heat of this pandemic, papers printed in important journals were peer-reviewed within 10 weeks; one rattled through the process in just nine days for Nature. But, like Petrovsky, I have heard similar stories from many other frustrated experts who confronted the conventional wisdom that this lethal virus was a natural spillover event. Some could not even get letters published, let alone challenge those key papers promoting the Chinese perspective which have since turned out to be flawed or wrong.'' ''Only now is acceptance emerging that the science establishment colluded to dismiss the lab leak hypothesis as a conspiracy theory, assisted by prominent experts with clear conflicts of interest, patsy politicians and a pathetic media that mostly failed to do its job. And yet, at the heart of this scandal lie some of the world’s most influential science journals.''
    • Folk will continue to believe what they want to believe. A nice, friendly, wholesome narrative is preferable to one which questions whether the whole thing has been a major error of judgement. Emperor and new clothes scenario.  Yes my wife is not the only one having trouble with AZ, thousands of others are (check out twitter and FB (though FB groups regarding vaccine and side effects are being shut down regularly, as freedom of speech is great as long as it's not controversial or contradictory to the prevailing govt narrative). However, we are being labelled conspiracy theorists for questioning the validity of the presented evidence re AZ and even Covid. Which is news to us. We are just a normal family doing our best to get by. Noone wants to hear any "bad" news, even if it has merit. So by extension, being rational has translated into being irrational. Many folk are sleepwalking hoping this dream will end, not seeing the wood for the trees, instead of being awake (not woke, but awake) and affecting change through observation and exchange of information. But observation is a rare commodity and fear discourages free exchange of information. It's all "meh meh meh" .....and they want to give the vaccine to kids ...have they no shame?
