We provide fast and flexible access to over 10,000 financial markets – including indices, shares, forex, commodities – through our award-winning range of platforms and apps.

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, Ireland, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. Through our low fees and smart price-sourcing technology, we help traders keep their costs down.

All trading involves risk. Spread bets and CFDs are leveraged products and can result in losses that exceed deposits. The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account can fall as well as rise. Please take care to manage your exposure.

* For CFDs, based on revenue excluding FX, published financial statements, October 2016; number of active UK financial spread betting accounts (Investment Trends UK Leveraged Trading Report released June 2017); for forex based on number of primary relationships with FX traders (Investment Trends UK Leveraged Trading Report released June 2017)
