We also offer our products through a number of third-party institutional providers, chosen carefully to ensure they maintain our strict standards of regulatory compliance as well as fitting our risk profile. Around 10% of our currently active clients have been introduced by our partners.
Partnership with us can vary from a simple referral basis through to full ‘white-labelling’ of our dealing and back-office systems, where we provide a dealing solution with the partner’s branding. This enables our partners to generate new revenue streams using their own marketing capabilities, while relying on our award-winning trading platforms and our expertise in dealing, risk management and client services.
Our 2017 major partnership is with BlackRock, the world’s largest ETF provider. Together, as part of IG’s strategy to diversify our product set, we will cater for a broader range of sophisticated investors. This future offering will include a range of model ETF-based portfolios and a customisable offering, leveraging the capabilities of our existing stockbroking platform.
