IG Group Named Top Employer


IG Group has been certified as one of Britain's Top Employers for the third year in a row, based on independent research by the CRF Institute.

We are delighted to have been recognised as one of the UK's leading employers in 2011. This accolade, along with our 2010 and 2009 awards, demonstrates our commitment to providing a friendly and supportive working culture.

This year's report singled out IG Group for being 'outstanding' in the following areas:

  • Being the clear market leader – the best in its business
  • Consistent growth year-on-year
  • Being highly innovative
  • Bonuses based on the performance of the business
  • International secondments
  • A friendly, supportive culture

Tim Howkins, Chief Executive of IG Group, commented: 'The IG way is to be thoughtful and considered – not brash and loud. Investment banks have a dog-eat-dog reputation, but we’re much more supportive.'

When asked about the future, he went on to say: 'The Group will continue to grow, with an unchanged strategy of excellent customer service and a commitment to great technology.'
