IG empowers informed, decisive, adventurous people to access opportunities in financial markets. We were established in 1974 as the world’s first spread betting firm, and are now a global leader in online trading and the winner of multiple awards. We provide trading and investment services to clients worldwide, and have sales offices in 14 countries across Europe, Ig binary option, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and the US.
Our head office is in the City of London. This is now complemented by a growing suite of non-leveraged share dealing and wealth-management products, suiting a broad range of risk appetites and trading and investment objectives throughout a client’s lifetime. While our original products are designed for active traders, our newer offering extends our reach both to self-directed investors and those preferring a low-cost managed-portfolio approach. We’ve been able to develop our offering extremely cost-effectively, by building on our existing technology, teams and infrastructure, and by leveraging the established strength of our brand and marketing capabilities. CFDs are derivatives contracts that enable clients to take advantage of changes in an asset’s price, without owning the asset itself.
Let’s say you believe the market price will fall, so you ‘sell’ 500 contracts at the market price of 320p. 10 per point at the offer price of 1001. Launched in the UK in 2014, our share dealing offering has built on our pedigree in the online leveraged trading sector. As well as providing our current spread betting and CFD clients with facilities to place their non-leveraged portfolio with us, we’re now attracting a completely new audience to IG.
