Founded:December 1973
Description:
Founded in London in 1974, IG began by inventing a new way for people to trade on the price of gold. Since then, we’ve grown to become a global leader in online trading with offices in 15 countries. IG created the concept of financial spread betting, enabling clients to deal on the price of gold as an index rather than trading the commodity itself. This made the market far more accessible and removed the prohibitive costs associated with commodity trading. The company was originally called IG Index. In the following years we expanded rapidly, underpinned by market-leading technology which supported round-the-clock client trading. We were the first spread betting firm to introduce online dealing in 1998, capitalising on the emergence of the internet and an increased awareness of financial products. The company became IG Group in 2000, adding IG Markets then later IG Markets Japan and Nadex as it continued to grow. The group is now one of the UK’s top 200 firms and is listed on the London Stock Exchange and the FTSE 250.
