ISA - No Silver Miners' ETF Tradeable?

Recommended Posts

We are probably in the early stages of a new precious metals bull market and there is currently no way to get exposure to silver miners through an ETF within the IG ISA. Would it be possible to add the following ETF's to the available options online?


Global X Silver Miners ETF                        NYSEARCA:SIL


ishares MSCI Global Silver Miners ETF     NYSEARCA:SLVP


PureFunds ISE Junior Silver ETF               NYSEARCA: SILJ


Thank you

I don't know what happened to the tickers in my post above but they are all listed on the New York arca exchange and here they are again SIL, SLVP & SILJ


Let's see how this works out :-)

Hi , thanks for the post!


The reason that the ETFs you have requested are not available on our ISA platform is because they are not actually ISA eligible in the underlying market.  In order for an ETF to be ISA eligible, it must either be directly authorised by the FCA for sale to UK retail investors, or passported into the UK under the EU UCITS (Undertaking for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities) rules.

I'm pleased to confirm that all the ETFs are however available through our share dealing platform.


I hope this helps, but do let us know if you have any more ETF/ISA queries!

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
