IG Index Named Best Spread Betting Service
For the third year running IG Index has won the award for Best Spread Betting Service at the Shares Awards.
The award, voted for by readers of Shares Magazine, confirms IG Index's position as the world's number one spread betting firm. We were also selected Financial Provider of the Year, making us the only organisation to receive multiple awards on the night.
In total IG Index was nominated for six awards including Best Online Trading Platform and Best Binary Betting Service, with IG Markets being nominated for Best CFD Provider.
Matthew Tooth, managing director of IG Index, commented 'being nominated in so many categories shows not just the breadth but the quality of services we offer clients.' He added that the strength of the online dealing platform, PureDeal, was fundamental to the company's success: 'It has been a busy year and traders are very unforgiving if the online facility lets them down.'
This result follows recent research undertaken by Investment Trends, a leading market research organisation, which revealed that 30% of active financial spread betting clients in the UK hold an account with IG Index, with those surveyed citing reputation, quality of service and superior dealing platform among the reasons for choosing IG Index.
