Phone Waiting Times



I have made a couple of calls to IG in the last few days.

The waiting times have been around 45 minutes.

Are there any standards set regarding waiting times for your customers, which you do not breach please?

Three days ago, I spoke to Abdul in the New Business department. He could not answer all my questions and informed me one of the managers will be calling me. No call has been received.

Thank you.

Same with all UK companies.  They must have run out of Indian call centres to offshore to.

Difficult even to get a phone appointment with a doctor.  God bless the frontline heroes etc.  (We don't want to be a burden on the NHS, hahaha but I digress ... )

Your wait times are a joke. In a fast market I want execution and with IG, I have to accept that my order won't get excuted. 2.5 minutes into the call I'm still going through the various tools you've got to reduce the chance the caller will be patient enough to stick with the call.

Hi @TimThomas

Currently call wait times are extremely low, we have increased significantly the headcount over the last months and we are trying our best to answer incoming calls within seconds or a couple of minutes in the worst scenario.

I'm sorry to hear that your call wasn't picked up quick enough. Should you call us again to deal I feel confident in saying that our Dealing team will meet your expectations. 

Let me know if there is anything else we can do for you (Carbon Emissions are available for Online Trading again).

All the best,

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
