Execution venues and quality of execution

When we execute orders on your behalf, European regulatory requirements (MiFID II) oblige us to take all sufficient steps to achieve the best possible result on a consistent basis.

To help you understand how we do this, we publish annual information relating to the top five execution venues that we relied on when you traded with us in a given year. We also publish nine reports at varying intervals that outline the quality of our execution.

You can find all of this information below.

Spread bets and CFDs

Information relating to our leveraged products, including information about the underlying venues we use to hedge your DMA trades.

When you trade CFDs or spread bet with IG, you are contracting with us and we act as the sole execution venue.

When you use our CFD DMA service, we are still your execution venue. However, we directly replicate your trade in the underlying market.
