IG is a global leader in online trading and investing, providing access to over 10,000 financial markets - including shares, indices, forex, commodities and binaries.

Established in 1974 as the world's first financial spread betting firm, our aim is to become the default choice for active traders and investors globally. Our online, execution-only share dealing service is powered by the same market-leading technology as our spread betting and CFD services. Clients have access to live, streaming prices and a transparent execution process. At the start of 2016, we reduced and simplified our charging structure to give clients even better value for money. We also allow clients to use their stock portfolio as collateral to initiate leveraged trading, and those clients who use both products benefit from lower, preferential fees on their share dealing account. Following the launch of the IG SIPP in the UK, we believe we now have a market-leading proposition.

We also recently launched IG Smart Portfolios, our new range of globally diversified investment portfolios built with iShares exchange traded funds (ETFs). We construct and fully manage the portfolios for our clients using asset allocation models from BlackRock, the world's leading asset management company.
