IG Smart Portfolios offer you a simple, low-cost way to invest for your future, and can help you achieve your financial goals.

IG’s portfolios are built in partnership with BlackRock, the worlds’ leading asset manager, to make sure your investments are in the best possible hands. You’ll get a fully managed, globally diversified portfolio tailored to your risk profile, but pay just a fraction of the costs you’d expect from traditional wealth managers. And with no hidden fees, you’ll know the total cost of investing upfront.

An IG Smart Portfolio general investment account has no limit on contributions, and you can also invest via an ISA or SIPP for a tax-efficient solution.*

How Does Investing in an IG Smart Portfolio Work? 


When you open an IG Smart Portfolio account, IG will ask you a series of questions to determine your risk appetite and help you decide which of its portfolios is right for your profile.

The objective is to provide you with an investment portfolio that delivers long-term returns, while spreading your money and risk across different asset classes, sectors and regions. IG does this by building each of its portfolios with exchange traded funds (ETFs). The low cost and transparent nature of ETFs makes them ideal assets for risk-controlled investing, and will help you keep more of what you earn.

When you make a deposit into your portfolio, IG will invest your funds in a range of market-leading ETFs, in weightings that are appropriate for your risk appetite. The company’s experts will then monitor, manage and rebalance your investments as necessary, ensuring your funds are allocated to the right assets for your risk profile at all times.

Why Should You Invest in the IG Smart Portfolio? 


IG Smart Portfolios offer an innovative and affordable way to invest with an expert. They are:

Expertly managed: IG has partnered with BlackRock, the world’s leading asset manager, to make sure your investments are in the best possible hands.

Diversified: Every pound of your money will be automatically spread across a range of asset classes, sectors and regions, in a way that suits your risk profile.

Low cost: IG’s transparent management fee is significantly less than you’d expect from traditional wealth managers. And the more you invest, the lower it gets.

Straightforward: Quick and easy to get started, even easier to keep track. And with no hidden fees, you’ll know your total cost of ownership from the start. 

Platform Risk Warning

Spread bets and CFDs are leveraged products and can result in losses that exceed deposits. The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account, a stocks and shares ISA or a SIPP can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in. Please ensure you fully understand the risks and take care to manage your exposure.
