How do I open a spread betting, CFD, share dealing or ISA account?

If you don’t have any live accounts with IG, you can apply for a live account directly from here.

If you’re an existing client of IG’s with a live account, you can open other accounts via your My IG dashboard.

Log in to your account dashboard, select ‘add an account’ and then choose the account type you want to add. As part of the application process, you may need to complete a few questions regarding your trading and professional experience and your education. Select ‘I agree’ and ‘finish’ once you’ve completed the questions.

Please note: leveraged accounts require manual processing and might not reflect immediately. We’ll reach out to you via your preferred email address if anything further is required.
