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.

    • Perhaps even less stellar is that none of the essential "Greeks", except for Implied Volatility, are published for any Options on Indexes and Commodities. Options are therefore impossible to price in order to judge "fair value" using any of the traditional metrics. Also since "Theta" is missing one has no idea of the time decay in valuation etc. etc... An account with a futures broker seems the only way if one is serious about Index or Commodity options. I also have an account with Nabtrade, which allows buying calls and puts, as well as writing covered calls for many individual shares but does not allow writing puts, covered or otherwise. What's a punter to do I ask you...?
    • I joined IG  to trade Options chains. and when i enquired i was told i could do this on the Spread Betting platform.  No mention of  needing to telephone in - feel both surprised and disappointed. most likely will close ac. as do not understand why this information was not mentioned
