How do IG trading rebates work?

If you're an active trader, you could be eligible for monthly cash rebates based on your trading activity. Simply trade a minimum notional value in one asset class within a calendar month, and you’ll be rewarded with a cash rebate for each notional million (USD) traded – and a percentage of your commission on share CFDs.

If you qualify for a tier in one asset class, you’ll also receive a trading rebate in the other asset classes, at the same tier level. Rebates are paid in your base currency, around the 10th of the following calendar month.

Tier 1 1.5 5%
Tier 2 6 10%
Tier 3 10 20%

Examples

Example A If your notional trade value for the month on FX is US$300 million, you would qualify for a tier 3 rebate of US$10 per million traded. This means your rebate would be:

300 (USD million notional traded) x 10 (rebate per million traded) = US$3000 or AU$42362

Example B If, during the same month, your notional trade value for indices is US$35 million, you would also qualify for a tier 3 rebate of US$7 per million traded. This is simply because you have met the threshold for tier 3 in FX, even though you haven’t done so in indices. Your indices rebate would be:

35 (USD million notional traded) x 7 (tier 3 rebate per million traded) = US$ 245 or AU$3452

Why get an IG professional account?

Professional accountholders are rewarded for their loyalty with even higher cash rebates each month, along with a host of other exclusive benefits.

Rebates for professional accountholders

Simply trade the minimum monthly volume in one asset class within a calendar month to qualify for our best-rate rebates. Remember, if your volume qualifies you for a trading rebate in one asset class, you will also qualify for a rebate in the other asset classes at the same tier level – even if you didn't meet their notional trade volumes.
