Dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP)


Recommended Posts

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? 

As mentioned in the previous forum, I will contact our corporate actions team about who can push this. I think it's a great idea that a lot of clients want. I will update on the other forum.

Apologies for the delay in this project. 

Thanks

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

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

    • Yeah i'm talking about trading.  I think what i'm trying to figure out is how i'd fair in a crash given you don't really know its happened until its happened.  I suspect i would lose money initially but then should be able to turn it around, assuming the market recovers of course.  There are also whole years where markets go into reverse trends and again i guess i could trade those but its easier to see that's what's happening once it been and gone, at the time you might always be looking for the market to turn upwards and it keeps trending downwards.
    • The answer depends a lot on your personal circumstances, time horizons, whether you're trading for fun / extra cash or to make a living etc. If you're a long-term investor and have confidence in the quality of your holdings, then a bear market (defined as a 20% drop from the highs) is usually a great opportunity to top-up (personally I would do this by drip-feeding into the market slowly as it's impossible to be sure when a bottom has been reached). If you're a trader then market crashes and the associated volatility usually throw up lots of good trading opportunities but easy to get burnt if you don't know what you're doing. I always think of crashes / bear markets in this way...as scary as they can be, they're actually (eventually!) the beginning of the next bull market, as the Covid crash of March 20 proved to be most recently - best buying opportunity in many years. As you're relatively new to trading I would highly recommend reading 'The Disciplined Trader' by Mark Douglas. Expensive to buy usually, but well worth every penny. Hope this is all of some help to you.
    • Hi all, do you have any advice about what to do when a market crashes? I would assume a major crash was like what we saw last year when coronavirus broke. I only started looking into trading just after that happened so have not experienced one yet. Although was involved in the recovery which was a baptism of fire..I guess the question is, do you know when you're in a crash scenario? Of course the news might give clues but you don't know how far the market will fall so are you inevitably going to lose money at least in the short term? This especially if you're a long trader. I assume you don't just carry on trading as you normally would. Thanks for the advice.
