Leading CFD broker IG Markets has scooped the prestigious Best CFD Provider award, at the Shares Awards 2010, underlining its firm foothold in the increasingly competitive CFD marketplace.

Voted by readers of Shares magazine, the award recognised IG Markets’ innovative, customer-orientated approach to CFD trading, which has led to IG Markets becoming arguably the biggest name in this rapidly expanding sector.

The award comes alongside a victory for IG Index, the spread betting arm of the IG Group, which was acknowledged as Financial Spread Betting Provider of the Year 2010 at the Investors Chronicle annual dinner in recognition of its commitment to ongoing customer support in the form of market-leading resources and educational tools.

With the IG Group continuing to pick up the industry’s leading accolades across the various annual awards ceremonies, it continues to enjoy a strong position across investment markets.
