Transfer Out - 3 to 5 working days?

I don’t know how others feel but I think it is totally unacceptable that while transfers of money into your FreeTrade account are almost instant, it takes 3 to 5 working days to transfer money out and into your nominated account. I am now in overdraft thanks to money I tried to transfer yesterday afternoon not yet arriving. Almost any other savings provider I have had is an instant transfer, I switched away from one provider due to their insistance of a 24 hour wait!

I had been thinking of joining Plus and using FreeTrade GIA as my emergency cash account while at the same time opening a modest SIPP. I am definitely going to re-think that if it really does take 3-5 days to get your money as that time-lag would render that product totally useless for my purposes.

P.S. I hope this isn’t a duplicated thread, I tried to search before creating a new topic.
