FAQs

When will I receive my referral rewards?

You’ll receive your first US$100 reward within 30 working days after your friend makes at least five qualifying trades within three months from opening a live account.

The remaining additional rewards will be paid within 30 working days after the last day of the qualifying period (i.e within three months of opening an account). The amount of reward you´ll receive is based on the spreads/commissions that you friend pays in the three months following the successful referral.

A qualifying trade is a CFD with a minimum size of one mini contract (or equivalent) on which commission has been paid.

I´ve already referred friends who qualified in the old scheme, can I participate in the new scheme?

Yes, you can continue to refer new friends under the new RAF scheme, but you may refer up to a maximum of five people overall, which includes any referrals under the previous promotion (e.g. if you referred two friends under the previous promotion, you may only refer three friends under the updated scheme).

How do I check my referral status?

Once your friend has signed up for an account, you and your friend will each receive an email notifying you that you´re both in a referral scheme. After this, you can log in to My IG, click on the ‘settings’ tab at the top of the page and select ‘refer a friend’ to view your referral status. You´ll also receive an email once your friend has successfully opened a live account.

Will the referral expire?

Yes. The promotion period to earn rewards for each friend will be three months from the date the live account is opened.

What happens to my friends that I referred in the old scheme who didn´t qualify?

They will be automatically rolled into the new scheme and their trades will be re-calculated for the next 3 months.

How do I know that I´m paid with the correct reward tier?

We´ll ensure all checks are done so that rewards are fairly and accurately given to qualified clients. Your friends are welcome to contact our customer service for details of the spreads/commissions that they´ve paid.
