A market leader in online trading
Launched in 1989 CMC Markets has grown to become one of the leading spread betting providers in the UK executing 33m trades for over 75,000 clients last year.
As a market leader we pride ourselves on providing a superior spread betting experience to the active trading community together with exceptional client service. That’s why last year we were voted Financial Services Provider of the Year by readers of Shares Magazine.
Voted best spread betting service in the UK
In the last 2 years we have been awarded “Best UK Spread Betting Service” by both MoneyAM and Shares Magazine. These awards are based on readers’ votes and they reflect all the hard work and energy that we've put in to transforming our service in order to give our customers the best possible spread betting experience.
In 2012 we also received MoneyAM‘s “Best Online Education” award, which recognises our efforts to provide our customers with spread betting education that really helps them improve their trading.
