We are a world-leading online trading and investments 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 spread betting and 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.
You can also use our investments service to buy and sell thousands of shares and ETFs in a more traditional sense, or choose a wealth portfolio that we manage on your behalf.
