Compliance and legal

Help to ensure IG continues to thrive in an ever-changing legal and regulatory landscape.

About the team


The compliance team is responsible for ensuring IG adheres to the relevant rules, regulations and guidelines it is bound by. Given the increasingly global nature of the business and a regulatory landscape that is constantly evolving, this is a greater challenge now than ever before.

Through the creation of policies, employee training and a comprehensive monitoring programme, we help to ensure IG operates in accordance with its obligations. Our work is diverse and we are stakeholders in all areas of the business, advising on best practice from the inception of new products, services and technology, through to our communications with clients. 


Our small but skilled team of in-house lawyers manages an array of high-quality legal work, providing expert advice tailored to the needs of the business. The work ranges from advising the company on any new initiatives it wishes to implement, to investigating and providing the legal and regulatory work required to open new IG offices around the world.

Why work with us?

Rosie Francis, compliance executive 

I started off in the IB Contracts team and the knowledge I gained there allowed me to progress to my current job. Compliance at IG is so varied, you really get to be involved in all areas of the business and make a difference.

Nicky Maan, senior legal counsel

The culture is professional, but also direct and sociable. Everything we do is centred on progressing commercial aims while protecting IG from risks. It has made me a more balanced, commercially minded lawyer.
