IG has a rich history of innovation, putting clients at the heart of every decision we make. Take an interactive look through the events that have shaped us – and how we have continued to lead the way at the forefront of our industry. IG exists to empower informed, decisive, adventurous people to access opportunities in financial markets. As a global leader in online trading and an established member of the FTSE 250, we have a 43-year heritage. We’re the No.1 provider of CFDs and spread betting worldwide1, with offices located in 15 countries and operations in a further two. Operating globally under the IG brand, and in the US as Nadex, we’re the trusted platform provider for over 185,000 clients. Our suite of products provides efficient, flexible access to more than 15,000 financial markets for a broad spectrum of financially sophisticated consumers, ranging from active traders to retail investors. Using our cutting-edge platforms and apps, our clients place almost 8 million transactions a month with us.2 A history of creating solutions Innovation has been at the heart of our business since we began life in 1974. As the UK’s original financial spread betting provider, we introduced a completely new, accessible way for people to trade on gold – by defining it as an index. Over subsequent years, we went on to expand the product set and create increasingly advanced technology to support our clients’ trading needs. Our innovations have included the first online dealing platform for financial spread betting in 1998 and the first trading app for Apple Watch in 2015. This year we delivered a completely new trading platform that is beginning to greatly enhance the trading experience for our clients. An intuitive, customisable interface offers straightforward functionality for the less-experienced trader, while those with more demanding requirements have access to a range of advanced functions. Technology has also enabled us to continually refine our marketing techniques. We’re now able to produce highly targeted advertising campaigns that introduce our products to the people they are most likely to suit. A sophisticated application and onboarding process then ensures that only appropriate clients proceed – gaining access to the products and educational materials that fit their objectives, knowledge and capital resources. Over the years, we’ve evolved and broadened our product offering to meet the changing needs of traders and investors, and it’s now supported by an extensive range of tools and resources to help our clients. From teaching essential trading and risk-management techniques to providing market insight and alerts about upcoming economic events, our educational and news services draw on four decades of experience to help people trade and invest more effectively. Our operating model and risk management strategy have been thoroughly tested over time, and have proved highly resilient in a wide range of real-life scenarios. Our business has continuously adapted to a changing economic backdrop, and we remain agile and innovative in the face of an uncertain regulatory landscape, as we look to the next phase of our growth.
