The Details

About Us

We’re a global leader in online trading, with our range of award-winning platforms and apps providing fast and flexible access to over 17,000 financial markets – including indices, shares, forex, and commodities.

Established in 1974 as the world’s first financial spread betting firm, we’re now the world’s No.1 provider of CFDs and spread betting*, and a global leader in forex. We also offer an execution-only share dealing service in the UK, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. Through our low fees and smart price-sourcing technology, we help traders keep their costs down.

Spread bets and CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 76% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading spread bets and CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how spread bets and CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.
Professional clients can lose more than they deposit.

* No.1 based on revenue excluding FX (published half-yearly financial statements, June 2019); for forex based on number of primary relationships with FX traders (Investment Trends UK Leveraged Trading Report released August 2018). Negative balance protection does not apply to professional traders.
