What Type of Broker Is IG?

Dimension Advantages Disadvantages
Broker Model IG offers tight spreads and fast execution due to its Market Making model. As a counterparty to its clients' operations, IG has a potential conflict of interest that may lead to decisions that are not in the best interest of the clients.

IG is a Market Making (MM) broker, which means that it acts as a counterparty to its clients in trading operations. That is, instead of connecting directly to the market, IG acts as an intermediary and takes the opposite position to its clients. As such, it can offer faster order execution speed, tighter spreads and greater flexibility in terms of offering leverage. However, this also means that IG has a certain conflict of interest with their clients, as their profits come from the difference between the bid and ask price of assets, which could lead to them making decisions that are not necessarily in the best interest of their clients. It is important for traders to be aware of this dynamic when trading with IG or any other MM broker.
