Spread Betting Companies

These days there are a large number of spread betting companies on the market fighting for your business.  You will find that they all advertise having the best spreads, trading platform and market choice.  If you actually use each of them and compare their services, you will find that a select few stand out from the crowd.

Below you will find the top five brokers that we personally use and the reasons why.

IG Index

By far and away the most successful of all the spread betting firms, IG Index is a company for the serious trader.  It offers market leading spreads on a number of the main forex pairings and index trades. Its platform is one of the strongest on the market and offers one click trading, a huge variety of markets to choose from and probably the quickest trade execution speeds of all the companies.


Although it isn’t as established as some of the brokers out there, Intertrader has grown into one of the leading providers of spread betting services on the market.  It is owned in partnership between the famous betting company BWIN.Party and the owner of Capital Spreads – London Capital Group.
