Reliability and recognition

Created in 1974, IG is the first company of its kind. They have managed to retain their avantgarde status and maintain their position as a world leader in the market by placing innovation at the heart of their development. This is why this broker has a huge number of clients around the world and offers commercial services in 13 countries.
IG is no. 1 in online CFD brokerage in France and around the world thanks to the trust placed in them by a large number of investors.
They attach particular importance to the security of their clients’ funds, and are authorized and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), by the German Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (BaFIN) and the Deutsche Bundesbank (German Federal Bank), who have notified the French supervisory authority, l’Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (Banque de France), that a European passport has been implemented that allows us to offer our services in France
