We are the world's and Australia's No. 1 CFD provider*.
We give retail investors leveraged access to over 10,000 financial markets through our award-winning trading platform and mobile apps.
We began in 1974 as Investors Gold, providing an innovative way for retail investors to speculate on the price of gold.
Since then we established ourselves as a market leader around the world.
We hold a market-leading position in many countries, including Australia, the UK, Singapore and France, and are the No.1 global provider of CFDs.
We are authorised and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC).
The vast majority of our clients are not City traders, they are often professional men and women who are interested in the financial markets.
We pride ourselves on our high standard of customer service - providing 24-hour telephone support (speaking to real people), as well as a comprehensive range of education, training tools, trading tips and market commentaries online.
