Trading Update

IG Group Holdings plc (the "Group") has benefited from record levels of client activity in the recent market volatility, despite it being holiday season in the majority of the countries in which the Group operates. As a result the Group currently expects that it will achieve revenues in excess of £94m for the quarter ending on 31 August 2011, compared to £79.1m in the corresponding period in the prior year. This would represent growth of at least 19%. Costs have been in line with management’s expectations.

The Group’s credit management processes have proved robust and it is anticipated that the doubtful debt charge for the quarter will be less than 1% of revenues for the quarter.

The Group will publish its Interim Management Statement on 13 September 2011.
