Live overseas and trying to open an account


Recommended Posts

I was trying to open an account, living in Japan. I went to IG.com.au to open an account as I pay tax in Australia, however, I don't have an address in Australia as I live in Japan. How could I open an account??

Hi @marionie

We understand your situation regarding residing in Japan while wanting to open an account with IG in Australia. Due to jurisdiction and regulatory restrictions, you are unable to open an Australian account without an Australian address.

However, you can still open an account with IG Japan. This will allow you to trade while residing in Japan. Visit the link to open an account with IG Japan: https://www.ig.com/jp/application-form

All the best,

Hi AshishiG

Thank you for getting back to me on this matter.

I understand the jurisdiction issue occurs in Australia without a valid address.

However, there is an issue creating an account with IG Japan online, as they ask to put in a full name in Japanese character (Kanji), as I don't use Japanese character in my name.

Any idea what I could do to bypass this issue?

Dear @marionie, After consulting with our Sales team in Japan, we were advised that you can apply using your English name in both Kanji and Katakana. However, the name needs to be in Zenkaku format, which means you must leave a space between each letter. For example, if the name is Ashish IG, it should be written as A s h i s h  I G. To simplify this process, please visit the following link: https://so-zou.jp/web-app/text/fullwidth-halfwidth/. Enter your full name to convert it to Zenkaku format, and then use that in your application.

All the best,
AshishIG

Thanks, I will try that then.

However, this information is already in your system that I couldn't use this same username.

Can you erase my information?

Could you please send an email to sales.jp@ig.com with this information so that the Sales team in Japan can make the necessary changes?

All the best, 
AshishIG

Can you please n log in to your Demo account using your current username and password. Then, go to settings and change the username to a different one. After making the change, you can submit a new application with the username you wish to keep.

Once I establish the new account with IG Japan, how can I close the account with IG Australia?

You can just drop an email to helpdesk.au@ig.com from your registered email address requesting to cancel the account.

All the best, 
AshishIG

    • As more users embrace Dapp, it gets easier to trade crypto, engage in DeFi lending/borrowing and trade NFTs. With the growing need to trade NFT comes the introduction of Love Power Movement, a transparent and accessible marketplace with the best conditions for successful NFT sales. Although the NFT sector has recorded significant growth, it's still impeded by challenges like low protection of artists' and buyers' data, absence of organised policy protecting sellers and buyers amongst others. Love Power aims to tackle those by offering fixed commissions and royalties to creators, ensuring proper profit for sales. LPM token forming a crucial part of the ecosystem has been launched with no presale and VC investment, with intent to direct proceeds from token sales to NFT artists. As $LPM prepares to list on Bitget, the vast community of Love Power Movement would surely be watching keenly.
    • I missed out on NOTCOIN airdrop though i took advantage to buy it at $0.05 when it dipped and in a short while it rose back to $0.2. Made some decent gains there and I'm still holding. I will explore the giveaway to boost my NOTCOIN portfolio on the cex. Right now, my focus on the pre-market trading for hamster on Bitget, I want to make the best use of the Hamster airdrop I'm anticipating.
    • Dear @br864626, Please note that you can transfer shares from your employer's Share Incentive Plan (SIP) or Save As You Earn Scheme (SAYE) to an IG ISA, you will have to ask the provider to initiate the transfer. Thanks, KoketsoIG
