About us

A leading global provider of spread betting and CFDs

Since our inception in 2006, Spread Co has been providing competitive spreads and low margins to the growing CFD and spread betting community, through our robust, custom-built trading platforms that are available on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

 

 

The Great British Broker

As a leading online broker of CFD trading and spread betting, we pride ourselves on offering competitive pricing and excellent customer service to all of our clients. By offering fixed rather than variable spreads, our clients can take control of their trading – safe in the knowledge that the spread they see is the spread they get. Through low trading charges, our clients’ trading capital can go further.

Every Spread Co client can also benefit from 0% financing on short index and equity positions. They will also be assigned a dedicated relationship manager, who is on point to help increase their working knowledge of both the trading platform and to provide any relevant market updates. On a daily basis, our in house analyst, David Morrison, provides coverage of the main factors affecting stocks, commodities and forex, communicated through his AM and PM Bulletins.
