What is an in-specie transfer?
An ‘in-specie’ transfer refers to a method of transferring an investment account to another provider. In-specie transfers involve moving your specific units in a tracker fund across to your new ISA/LISA provider, rather than selling down your investments and moving the proceeds across as cash.
In-specie transfers typically take up to 6 weeks to complete. You can also opt for a ‘mixed’ transfer, which means we transfer some of your balance across in-specie and the rest as cash.
