Transferring stocks to IG from Robinhood US...


Jules_B

Question

Has anyone successfully done this, or have any advice or tips?

From what I understand, Robinhood want new broker to initiate the transfer, but every new UK broker has told me transfer needs to be initiated with Robinhood.

Catch 22!

Hi @Jules_B,

You can find details on how to transfer shares into IG. If you have an active IG share dealing or ISA account, you can request to transfer your personal shares or ISAs to IG from another UK-based broker from My IG.

For Europe-based or US-based brokers to IG, you will need to contact your broker you wish to transfer from to initiate the request. They’ll guide you accordingly and contact our transfers team.

More details here.

Robinhood might be processing transfers as per US broker to broker regulations and procedures, but unfortunately we will need them to contact our transfer team.

I hope that this information helps.

All the best - Arvin

Thanks, Arvin

But therein lies the problem!

Robinhood insist on new broker initiating the transfer. I'll try and reach out to them again, but so far they have not budged on this.

 

Hi @Jules_B,

I understand, you can reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com or use the live chat feature on the IG website. I believe that their answer would be similar though. Alternatively you can try transfers@ig.com but this email is to send transfer documents over.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin

Hey, jamowale

Sounds like we're in exactly the same boat!

I've been going round in circles with multiple brokers trying to figure this out, but keep getting the same answer.

It appears that no-one is that bothered about doing the work, and just sends canned responses.

Can't believe this isn't possible, and doesn't come up more often!

Likely a different story if you go to a private broker with millions in investments, I imagine.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • 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.
