Trying to transfer ISA out but no response

Thanks for the replies. Essentially i'm looking to move my ISA account to another provider but keep my spreadbetting account with IG. The new provider has been trying to contact IG to get the valuation on my ISA account, but IG haven't replied and the new provider suggested i attempt to make contact.

I initially emailed IG about 3 days ago i didn't get a reply, so i took TrendFollowers advice and phoned customer services yesterday. The lady said the person who deals with this is away and suggested i send an email to the helpdesk. I told her i had done this already and then she said i needed to fill in am AML (Anti Money Laundering) form. I asked her "where do i get this form from?", and she didn't know and suggested again i send an email to the helpdesk.

The lady was pleasant enough but wasn't really able to help me.

So do i need to fill in an AML form as a private investor?

And where do i go from here?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

@yogitree,  just a thought but have you filled out a transfer authorisation form provided to you by the firm you are transferring to?

I ask because to transfer assets into IG they provide a form for you to fill out which they then take to the company where the assests are to be transfered from.

In your case if IG haven't received a similar authorisation form from the new company they may be waiting.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm sure i did fill in a similar form online on the Lloyds website when entering all the necessary data they needed.

I'll phone Lloyds on Monday and find out if there are any forms or data that they need from me etc.

Thanks for all of your help.

Hi @yogitree,


AML checks are to verify the source of your funds, this is usually requested to clients that are relatively new. We sent an email a while ago where we explained the steps needed in order to do these checks, but we have not heard a reply from you regarding the documents requested, so we cannot proceed with the transfer.

In order to proceed, please reply to the email with the documents requested. If you cannot find the email, please contact our helpdesk again and they will be able to tell you the documents I need (i have left a note on your account specifying what we need from you).

    • 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.
