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.

Thanks for the posts. I am in a similar boat to the one you were.

 

Did it ever get resolved?

I too am looking to transfer my SIPP to IG but have the same question as Anders. I only recently moved from HL to II only to find out that I can't trade international ETF's!! Looking to move again and any experience/advise much appreciated.

I like IG as a whole and have had good experience with them. But James Hay seem apalling so far. They have failed to get a code to and it's been over a month. Plus when I phoned them they assured me someone would call me that day. Its been over a week.   So a plea to IG. Re evluate you your relationship with James Hay. Its not doing you any good at all if I take into account my experience.

I deal with Fidelity and their only shortcoming is lach of international share dealing to date.

    • There was another fork the other day - Bitcoin Latinum - the world's largest "insured" digital asset. One wonders if every time another variant is created it simply draws away potential investors from the original version. I bet committed Bitcoiners wish these variants would all just fork off 😉 I saw something the other day that happened to mention that a Bitcoin was worth about 10 ounces of Gold.......then it hit me - would I prefer to be offered one Bitcoin out there in the ether or ten ounces of physical Gold in my actual possession? 10 Bitcoin to buy a single ounce of Gold intuitively feels like the more sensible way around as I'm certain that Gold is safe but several times less certain that Bitcoin is - so we could be out by a factor of 100! But whilst fund managers all start allocating the odd fractional percent to get exposure to Alpha for minimal portfolio downside the price will probably hold or bubble up even more. It will be interesting though  if national regulators later turn round and ban funds from holding cryptos - then they will all have to rush for the exit at the same time. Maybe that's the ultimate expected outcome.  According to Wikipedia in March 2018 0.5% of bitcoin wallets owned 87% of all bitcoins ever mined. Imagine if  transferring that 87% to fund managers at peak prices is the intended end-game before it all collapses? It would make Bernie Madoff look like a mere pick-pocket.  
    • 3 Weeks to Flatten the Curve  -- Day 252 and counting:   A Dr writes, Yardley Yeadon @MichaelYeadon3 (PhD respiratory pharmacol) 1h "... The hallmark of a pandemic is excess deaths, such as the extreme event in spring. In the autumn, in excess of 10k deaths have been attributed to covid19. Yet the autumn all-causes mortality is barely above the 95% confidence interval for the 5y average. That’s not even an epidemic. For comparison, the degree of elevation of the last weeks all-cause mortality is the same as that arising from the first real heatwave we’ve had in U.K. (several days in Aug where temps exceeded 34C). Those were circulatory excess deaths & are familiar in Europe. Oddly though, now, non-covid19 deaths are apparently reduced. As this is most unlikely, there is significant overstatement of covid19 deaths, in turn due to the volume of false positives from PCR mass testing. Corrected for this, the dominant cause of total mortality is likely due to restricted access to the NHS for 8mo & counting. ..."
