"I was referred to IG by a colleague. Overall the process for opening and funding the account was efficient. The execution platform is one of the best I have come across. The commission pricing and bid offer spreads are very competitive. The best feature for me is the personal access to a premium account manager – my queries are answered professionally and the service has continuously improved even further. Keep up the good work!"
