Why get an IG professional account?

Cash rebates

Trade in high volumes? Get a rebate on your spread each month.

Lower margins

Your margins could be up to 90% lower as a pro trader.

More markets and products

Trade our full range of cryptocurrencies, as well as our digital 100s.

Collateral service

Use up to 95% of your IG share dealing account as margin for leveraged trades.

The IG professional account is for professional traders only, and retail protections don’t apply. Learn more about what you should be aware of, and what you’ll forgo.

Lower margins

Get the freedom to make your trading capital go further. As a pro, you’ll pay less margin to open positions than a retail trader.

Want to know more about what trading with us will cost you? Call us on 0800 195 3100.

More pro features

Qualify for an IG professional account, and you’ll also have access to a range of features not available to retail traders.

Credit facilities

Get bespoke margin call levels and more by arrangement, to help improve the efficiency of your account.

Up to £25,000 in rewards

Refer up to five friends to us, and you’ll earn £5,000 when each trades a certain amount in their first three months. They needn’t be a pro trader, either.

Waived fees

So that you can keep more of your returns, you won’t pay custody fees in an IG share dealing account – or management fees on an IG Smart Portfolio.

Exclusive invitations

Be the first to know about the events we run – whether premium hospitality, or a seminar or webinar.

Things to know

As a professional, you’ll be treated differently to retail traders. Here are some of those differences to be aware of.

Higher leverage

Pro traders are not subject to ESMA leverage caps in place to protect retail clients, so should consider their risk appetite.

No negative balance protection

Losses can exceed deposits on a professional account.

Sophisticated language

We won't necessarily use simple language in our communications to pro clients.

Assumed experience

We expect pro traders to have a certain level of knowledge and understanding.
