About us

We are a world-leading online trading and provider, giving you access to opportunities across thousands of financial markets through our intuitive platforms and apps.

What we do

We help our clients trade financial markets on leverage, through CFDs. These products allow you to find opportunity in both rising and falling markets, and aren’t confined to one asset class – you can choose to trade on indices, forex, shares, commodities and more.
