Why choose IG?


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.

Market leader

With 40 years’ experience we hold a market-leading position in many countries, including the UK, Australia and France, as the No.1 global provider of CFDs*. We are Singapore's most preferred forex provider4.

MAS regulated

We are licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) for trading in securities and leveraged foreign exchange trading, and licensed by International Enterprise Singapore to trade CFDs on commodities.

Fund segregation

We place the full balance of your money into segregated bank accounts, ensuring your funds are returned in the event our financial circumstances change.


As a large multinational organisation we have strength in resources and stability, with a well-capitalised, debt-free balance sheet and consistently strong growth.1
