Can you add an ISA to your IG trading account?

Yes, if you want to invest in shares, ETFs and pre-made portfolios in a tax-free wrapper, IG offer a stocks and shares ISA. If you want to combine your short-term trading with some longer-term investments you can have both on IG. If I’m completely honest there are better stand-alone investment platforms that offer ISAs like Interactive Investor, where you pay a flat fee for all your accounts as opposed to IGs quarterly custody fee. But for tax free trading (spread betting) and tax free investing (ISAs), IG has a very good offering.
