Smart Portfolios - 2 years of performance history

Recommended Posts

We launched IG Smart Portfolios two years ago. It's not been an easy time to invest, but performance is pleasing nonetheless. 

As an added benefit, for any clients that are infrequent share dealers (or indeed are seeking a diversified portfolio) we don't charge any quarterly custody fees for those who invest £15,000 or more.

I'm hoping you can help, I opened an ISA account to buy shares, but have just discovered IG's minimum consideration fee is 90 pounds when I place an order On Exchange rather than On Quote.

I have 4000 pounds remaining to buy shares for my ISA and would like to buy 4000 pounds worth of shares in one company, but I'm being blocked from buying due to the consideration fee amounting to a total of 52 pounds and not their minimum 90 pounds. 

What options are there?

Should I be placing an order On Quote rather than On Exchange?

Hi Novice27 - I'm not entirely sure what's happened here. We don't set a 'minimum fee' of £90. 

It might be the case that your trade value (including stamp duty, and IG commissions) is exceeding your cash balance. 

If you're still having problems please contact our help desk for a resolution.

    • Hi guys, I am wondering if you can help me calm my blood pressure. Just started learning how to trade and left a long position open by mistake today and did not manage to close - GBP/CAD. Is there any way to close it or minimise the risk of losing money. My account is not big at all but I am most worried about losing more and/or going on a negative balance.   Any suggestions?   Best regards!
    • @dmedin, I totally agree.  I want to see the so called experts on IG Community that know it all and have lots of knowledge, intelligence, wisdom and cannot be wrong 'people'  to prove this. They will not as they do not really want to help anyone on IG Community as they are selfish apart from sharing their posts, sharing links, sharing technical and complex information and everything BUT what people on IG Community are looking for. They then get defensive, abusive, rude and really turn the screw so that their real character comes out.  I am a bad trader. I have no knowledge. I have no experience. There you go. I am sure this will satisfy some on the IG Community. So those who do have knowledge, do have experience and think they are superior I would love them to response to @dmedin and demonstrate that they are profitable traders who consistently make profits year upon year and pay a lot of tax to their tax authorities as they obviously do not use the tax efficient advantage of spread betting. 
    • I would love to see anyone prove they were consistently profitable from trading over 12 months.  Such evidence is hard to come by.
