Why Low Leverage ? IG offers no more than 50:1 ?


Recommended Posts

Could someone explain the benefits to IG by not offering a leverage of 500:1 ?  

Do IG not have an office set up in a jurisdiction that allows more leverage than the U.K. & European and Australian ASIC restrictions upon retail level accounts ? 

The web page where IG offers to compare leverage rates from their global offices, actually provides no information on leverage:-

Hey, 

With leveraged there's been a lot of regulatory changes over the last 2 years in the UK which we have to follow as a regulated company.

More regulators around the world are taking the same approach which is why we don't offer higher leverage. 

I hope this clarifies why we don't offer 500:1 leverage. All the best
