Costs, rebates and margins
We began in 1974 as IG Index, providing an innovative way for retail investors to speculate on the price of gold.
Since then we have continued to change the face of trading, establishing ourselves as a market leader around the world.
With 40 years’ experience 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.
Our technology combines superior features with high-speed execution, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding trader and provide an outstanding experience on all devices.
