Hi all, My name is Stephanie, I want my Husband to be able to use my account, when I asked IG for help on this they made it sound like I was up to no good and put stop on my account, any help would be grateful.

thanks for that, But I made an inquire with IG and was told I can't do that and they stopped my account from trading, just like that, while I was talking to them.

Have read the terms of the POA but we have to open a 2nd account to do this, what is the point of a 2nd account when we wish to use the same account, also account inactivity charges will apply if you don't use the account, why is it so hard for them to understand that a family might want to use the one account, this is just a small account for a few small trades, come on IG.

Now we are getting silly, here is the solution from IG help desk, have my husband open an account, then transfer my shares to his account and then close my account.

Really, how about you unlock my account, and we just get on with life.

Everyone who signs up to IG will have to go through KYC checks to make sure that only the individual who wants to trade is trading. This applies for everyone, irrespective of marital status. There are a number of additional legal and regulatory requirements which must be followed when trading.


This means that if you admit that either you signed up for an account in a different persons name (even if that is your partner), or that someone other than the account holder is trading, then yes - your account will be locked until the appropriate legal documents have been signed. There are a number of reasons why this is required, but it boils down to a basic principle: any form of investment has a potential to lose money if the markets move against you, and therefore any trade decision needs to be made by an individual who accepts liability and funds their own account. 


How to sort a limited power of attorney 


We understand that many will like to have shared accounts, or to be able to deal on their partners accounts. This is why there is a process in place to make this as smooth and quick as possible. Each individual needs to create an account at IG.com, and this shouldn't take longer than 3 or 4 minutes per individual. You then need to fill out the appropriate Limited Power of Attorney form (which is here for Australian clients, or can simply be searched in IG.com for your relevant location) which is a legal requirement, and email it to us. Assuming everything  is correct on the form, the turn around is usually complete within a day. 


I hope this clarifies things.

Thank you for your reply,

This was all that needed to be done in the first place, clear and concise instructions.

No need for the hostilities from IG Staff, not everyone is a crook.

Problem has now been rectified.

So it still goes on, no POA in place, No shares have been transferred in to my account and no emails or any form of contact from IG,

so what do I do now, its no wonder people get upset, your support is really bad.


Any help or Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm sorry that you are not happy with our service, but I have just looked back at the events / conversation surrounding this and I believe we were waiting on the LPOA documentation from yourself? After your initial query on Community above, and the reply requesting you send in a LPOA form, I can see that you sent us the form this morning. Turn around for manual processes and checks by our KYC team are generally a day (24 hours), but it looks like this was completed within 12 hours from when you sent the form. 


I have just had a look at your account and believe everything is now in order? Please give our TS team a call if you wish to discuss anything further as I believe this would be account specific which we wouldn't be able to discuss on a public forum.

    • The cryptocurrency industry has grown rapidly in recent years, with the total market capitalization now exceeding $500 billion. However, the industry still faces a number of challenges, including security and on-chain efficiency which is one of the biggest challenges in the cryptocurrency industry, because in recent years, there have been a number of high-profile hacks of cryptocurrency exchanges & wallets, and traders are faced with high cost of on-chain transactions. All of which summed up to make cryptocurrency trading less efficient. In order to address these issues, exchanges are seen taking up the responsibility of solving the problems and I've seen Bitget, a leading cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, recently partnering with Cobo, a leading provider of digital asset custody and security solutions. This partnership is aimed at enhancing the security and efficiency of cryptocurrency trading, which will allow users to seamlessly execute cross-exchange transactions, enabling users to capitalise on arbitrage opportunities without having to deposit their funds directly on exchanges. This could significantly reduce on-chain transaction gas costs and make crypto investments more efficient and cost-effective. Developments like this, if it could be capitalised on would take away bad players from the industry, make crypto a safe place and increase its adoption, but how wide would it cover for the whole users in the crypto space and even Bitcoin?
