Terms and conditions

  1. To qualify for the ‘refer a friend’ offer, the person making the referral (‘you’) must be a registered and actively trading account holder with IG (‘we‘, ‘us‘ or ‘our’).
  2. We have now stopped our referral offering, and only referrals made before 11 May 2018 are eligible. We will be completely stopping the scheme 28 July 2018, and will be in touch with all in-progress referrals prior to this date.
  3. You must have an existing business or personal relationship with the person you would like to refer. They must be 18 years or older. You must believe that they would like to be contacted by IG with details of its product or services including CFD trading. By providing us with the email address of your friend, you are requesting and authorising IG to send your friend an email on your behalf. You also consent to the use of your name in the email sent to your friend.
  4. You must be a direct, retail client of IG. If you have any introduction or introduction-type arrangement with IG or any IG entity, any referrals thereunder will not qualify for the ‘refer a friend’ offer.
  5. The referred friend must be a new user to IG (not having previously held an account with IG). Accounts are opened subject to status, and as such not all applicants will be successful in their application.
  6. Under no circumstances will we be liable for any losses that you or any referred person may incur as a result of CFD trading subsequent to this promotion.
  7. To qualify as an active referral, the person you have referred to us is required to make five opening trades of any product within six months of being referred. A qualifying trade is a CFD with a minimum size of one mini contract or equivalent.
  8. If any restrictions apply to your account or the account of the person you have referred, the referral will not qualify as active until restrictions have been lifted. Any restrictions that apply to an account will be detailed in the email that we sent to the account holder on activation.
  9. Only after the referral has been qualified as active will you receive a credit for use towards our range of rewards, and only then will the person referred earn a R1000 reward.
  10. For referrals made before 1 February 2017, the person referred is eligible for a reward of £50 on qualifying as an active referral. 
  11. Payment of rewards is only due and payable when you claim the credits.
  12. You can only refer any person once. If you have referred a person on one IG account, you cannot refer the same person again on another IG account.
  13. You can only refer up to 5 persons pursuant to this ‘refer a friend’ promotion. The referral of a 6th or greater person(s) by you or on your behalf, shall not incur any payment from IG to you in any respect.
  14. IG reserves the right to exclude you from this scheme if we believe you have tried to benefit from trades not made in good faith to simply take advantage of the offer. IG will act in a manner deemed to be fair to all parties, but is not obliged to provide a reason for such exclusion.
  15. You cannot refer yourself via a joint account, the account of a family member or the account of a member of the same household as you.
  16. This offer is not open to employees of IG or any IG Group company or employees of any other company engaged in direct competition with IG.
  17. IG reserves the right to amend the terms of this promotion, or withdraw the promotion at any time.
