Your money is safe

We’re based in the UK, and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the UK’s financial industry regulator. All your money is held in a segregated client bank account, in line with strict FCA rules about client money. We never use client funds for hedging or other purposes; your funds stay in the segregated account.


Why tight spreads are important

You can only make a profit with spread betting or CFD trading when the change in the underlying price is more than the amount of the spread.

For example, a two point spread means the asset price has to move at least two points before you start making a profit on the trade. If it moves by less than two points when you close your position, you’ll make a loss.

Tight, or narrow, spreads offer you the best opportunity to profit from small movements in prices and values.


What is spread betting?

Spread betting is a type of alternative investing that lets you speculate on the price or value of financial assets, such as shares, currencies, indices and commodities, without actually owning them.

Is spread betting for me?

If you understand the risks of trading in financial markets, spread betting might be for you. It’s different from investing in shares because your potential loss can be more than your deposit, but Spread Co risk management features can help you manage the risks.

Spread betting vs Shares

When you invest in shares it’s usually for the longer term, and you only make a profit if the share price rises. With spread betting you can speculate on the price rising or falling, and profit if you make the right call.
