Not one for our novice investors. IG is principally a share dealing platform, though there are also ready-made investment ‘Smart Portfolios’ available for those that want to have their investments managed for them.
For share traders it’s relatively low cost, at £24 per quarter for an ISA or share dealing account. You can't buy funds on the platform, apart from those that are listed – investment trusts and ETFs.
IG is more likely to suit investors who already know what they are doing, feel confident but like the idea of getting an expert to do the heavy lifting and monitoring. Share dealing and Smart Portfolios are available on the ‘Investments’ section of the website. It’s easy to get lost in the spread betting and CFD trading areas – higher risk investments and risky business. Not for your average Joe.
