Share dealing SIPP

Question

Hi, I'm thinking of transferring a portion of my Defined Contribution pension to an IG SIPP. I have a couple questions.

  1. Is there a way to see the range of shares, ETFs, etc. that are available to buy with IG Index's Share dealing SIPP? I don't want to find out it's really limited after the fact. There doesn't appear to be a SIPP demo account.
  2. Are IG's "Share dealing SIPP" and "IG Smart Portfolio SIPP" separate products, or if I open the former, I can I also invest some money in a Smart Portfolio?

Thanks.

Nobody able to help?
In the absence of any advice, anyone got recommendations for alternative SIPP providers?

I contacted IG support about this, and the answer was I have to contact James Hay. There were able to confirm that, "You can sell the shares in your IG SIPP and move the proceeds to your Smart Portfolio."

Unfortunately James Hay don't have new fangled things such as an email address. As I don't have an account at James Hay, I'm left with contacting them on the phone. I thought I'd take another look at this today, and the jameshay.co.uk Website is down. Net result is I have zero confidence an IG SIPP would be a relaible or convientent service.

I appreciate there appears to be little interest in this, but hopefully this helps anyone else looking at their SIPP. This has cemented my decision to transfer my ISA away from IG Index too.

    • I think that was in reference to the different strategies as in a mean reversion system with smaller targets needs more trades than a trend following system that is longer term.
    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
