I am considering opening a IG Stocks & Shares ISA, is it possible to hold the cash in Dollars or Euros etc while I decide what shares or funds to invest in?  I have had a IG SB account for many years.


Thanks for your post. 

With our share dealing account you can hold funds in other currencies (this is a manual conversion account rather than instant). 

The ISA account is not the same, we can't allow funds to be send into other currencies. 

Sorry about that. All the best.

Not sure if I am in the right area here, but here goes. I have both an ISA and a trading account with IG, on the 7th April I requested a bed and Isa on one of my shares within my trading account as I expected the share price to rise and did not want the profits taxed. I was assured that it would be completed promptly. Unfortunately, here we are on the 17th, the transaction has not been completed and the share has risen 8% this morning. I have spent 36 years working in the NHS and to see my hard earned nest egg diminishing before my eyes is devastating. I have been on the phone for hours listening to music and recorded messages, only to be cut off time and time again. This is appalling service for what I believe to be a simple transaction. Why is this taking so long and will IG compensate me for my losses when and if the transaction is completed?
