Our range of products is designed to provide solutions across the spectrum of our clients’ trading and investment needs.
Our original offering – still core to our business – is leveraged trading: contracts for difference (CFDs) and spread betting (in the UK and Ireland), which generates the majority of our revenue. 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. Attracting clients who seek longer-term investments, this broader product range is now fully live in the UK, and we‘ve introduced share trading to Australia.
We believe that IG is well placed to disrupt the long-term investment market and further engage our clients – enabling us, over the longer term, to build a new revenue stream for our business. 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.
IG clients are able to access over 15,000 global financial markets – including shares, forex, indices, commodities and other instruments – via market-leading platforms and apps that provide efficient, secure execution.
