    Update from support is that partial transfers are not allowed. Only way would be to withdraw some of the money.

    Would it ever work if I sold 5k into cash, then just initiated the transfer through Fidelity for 5k cash transfer?

    well, iweb's T&Cs - http://www.iweb-sharedealing.co.uk/PDFs/Terms-and-Conditions.pdf - say partial transfers (away from iweb) are allowed:

    Transferring your ISA to another ISA Manager

    20.24 You can, at any time, transfer:

    a. all of your current tax year's subscriptions, the investments bought with those subscriptions, and any income arising on those investments ; and/or

    b. some or all of your previous tax years' subscriptions, the investments bought with those subscriptions, and any income arising on those investments.
    that is basically a statement of the rules (which apply to all ISA managers) about what transfers are permissible. which implies they will allow any transfer (away from iweb) which is within those rules.

    so perhaps iweb support is wrong. i have found their support a bit hit-and-miss. (but they're so cheap! )

    Would it ever work if I sold 5k into cash, then just initiated the transfer through Fidelity for 5k cash transfer?

    well, that is a partial ISA transfer. how iweb would respond to that, i don't know.

    do you want to switch investments, as well as transferring to a different manager? if you do, a cash transfer might be simpler (assuming a partial transfer is possible at all). but if you want to keep the same investments, then a stock transfer is preferable - since who knows how long this will take, if iweb may be uncooperative.
