Dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP)


Recommended Posts

Guest Invis

Hello IG Community,

Can anyone advise - is it possible to set up automatic divided reinvestment on normal share dealing accounts and stocks and shares ISAs on IG and if so how would I do this?

Thanks for your help!

I would like IG to have dividends dripping program? Is that possible? 

I am am a long term accumulation investor. My portfolio is in millions. My Portfolio IG is only 3.5% of overall. The primary reason is the lack of DRIP. I don't care if they do or don't, other than I hate waste and commercial stupidity, obviously many do want it. In the meantime just Invest in II, or Halifax, it's included and cheap.

I agree with all the above sentiments.  I've used several brokers before, such as ii, Halifax, etc. I assumed ALL online brokers and investment platforms included automated DRIP.  Shocked that IG do not!  Even more surprised at their complacency in not responding to this thread.

Hi there,

Please could you explain why dividend reinvestment is not offered, and why there has been no update since the admin post on 20 Nov 2019.

I'd like an update on this too. I'm going to have to move my shares to another broker specifically for this reason.

Any news here? I will probably give up and move the shares I hold elsewhere soon as IG seem remotely uniterested in this

Update please 

Hey all, 

There's a team currently working to add a dividend reinvestment plan. We don't have a time frame yet but I will update you. 

All the best

DRP should be made available on priority as it’s such a basic feature. IG would risk losing customers if this doesn’t happen at the earliest !

It is funny that the IG website gives a definition about DRIP but does not offer it at the moment 
https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/support/glossary-investment-terms/dividend-reinvestment-definition

I like the platform but was surprised to see there was no option to reinvest Dividends after I signed up. Also would have thought since Jan 25th they may have been able to have come up with a solution by now.

Hi @Rawly,

IG is aware that it is an option that clients would like to see. I will forward your feedback to the relevant department to be reviewed.

Thank you - Arvin

Dear IG, 

Has there been any progress on providing a DRIP feature? 

This has been waiting an exceptionally long time, can we please recieve an ETA or a confirmation that the feature will not be provided. The current lack of response is leaving people in a constant state of limbo. This will trigger people to move to alternative providers due to lack of transparency.

Regards 

Pearse

How on earth is this still under review after almost 3 years?!

IG - please either give a proper update with an expected timeline for when this feature will be offered, or be honest and say that nothing is forthcoming.

Thanks

Hi @pmcguinness07 @Lambchops,

Unfortunately at this point in time there is no ETA for DRIP to be available on the platform. As mentioned IG is aware that it is a feature that some clients would like to see but there is no ETA.

All the best - Arvin

    • I think we should brace ourselves for the Ethereum ecosystem bull run as the much-hyped Dencun upgrade, initially slated for earlier, is now making its grand entrance in March 2024. Analysts are buzzing with excitement, foreseeing Ethereum (ETH) and its ecosystem projects stepping into the spotlight as the main actors of the next bullish surge. If all goes according to plan, this upgrade could unleash the full potential of the Ethereum ecosystem.   https://consensys.io/ethereum-upgrade   Just a month ago, the Total Value Locked (TVL) in most Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) protocols skyrocketed to all-time highs, with Optimism, Arbitrum, and Metis leading the charge. Following this surge came a wave of gaming projects flocking to the chain, banking on Ethereum to revolutionize gaming experiences and slash those pesky transaction fees.   The ETH price action is sending vibes reminiscent of Bitcoin’s pre-ETF era. As we eagerly await the potential approval of an ETH spot ETF in May, the “Decun” upgrade emerges as another game-changer. Analysts draw parallels between the impact of this upgrade on ETH and the transformative “Fire-Dancer” upgrade on SOL (Solana). In anticipation of these game-changing events, we’re witnessing a flurry of activity, with more L2 and gaming projects sprouting up on the Ethereum chain. OKX is already test-driving a promising L2 chain dubbed X1, while Bitget contemplates building a blockchain to amplify the utility of its Ethereum-based token, BGB. Not to be left behind, Binance has seamlessly integrated Optimism into its smart chain with opBNB.   In just one whirlwind month, a plethora of Ethereum-based projects have burst onto the scene, boasting impressive price actions upon listing—think STRK, MAVIA, NADA, ASTO, and the list goes on.   With ETH soaring above $3k and the charts painting a picture-perfect bull trend (even the likes of OP and ARB notching up multiple all-time highs), it’s time to ask: What are your expectations? Do you believe in the staying power of these new projects, or are they just fleeting sparks in the crypto cosmos? Strap in, folks, because the ride is just getting started!
    • A couple of years back in the crypto space, it was relatively uneasy for beginner traders, with time we have noticed the evolution of well structured frameworks like Copy Trading. Certain platforms have brought forth immensely good copy trading frameworks. Currently, Bitget is heralded as one of the best platforms. Per a PnL publication by the CEX there is a copy trader who made about $7,000 from trading $XRP. This is pretty mind blowing. Quite often, I have advised newbie and inexperienced to leverage on copy trading as means of earning while sharpening their edge. The afore profit amassed by a single trader is a testament to how beneficial copy trading is. With its recent growth, Copy trading seems like a buzzword which is too difficult to participate in, however you can participate in it by simply following an elite trader on Bitget. Once you hop on the homepage of the app you are greeted with its emblem, you just need to follow the prompts. By keenly taking part in this, you could get to rake as much profits as the trader who made a whopping $7,000.    
    • Given the varying volatility levels between assets like shares and natural gas, it seems logical that the amount of historical data considered should differ. Shares typically exhibit less volatility compared to commodities like natural gas. I'm curious to gather opinions on this matter. Specifically, I'm interested in understanding whether you adjust your lookback periods based on the asset class you're trading and, if so, how you determine the appropriate timeframe for each. I'm looking to reach a consensus or at least get a sense of common practices among day traders.
