One of the top CFD broker services in the UK has been shortlisted for a prestigious internet award. eToro, one of the largest CFD brokers in the country, has been named in a three-company shortlist for the Good Web Guide’s ‘Website of the Year’ award, in the finance category.
The eToro social trading network – originally called Retail FX when it was founded a decade ago – has millions of traders ranked in ‘leagues’ across the world. eToro’s social trading approach means that you can earn money by being a leader or by following a profitable trader.

The judges at the Good Web Guide have been putting hundreds of websites through their paces to arrive at shortlists in more than fifteen categories, from finance to gardening.
Panel member Ciaron Dunne, founder of Genie Ventures, said: “We ran this as a collaborate exercise with a diverse team of designers and online marketers at Genie HQ in Cambridge, and we had a lot of fun.”
- eToro – the first global marketplace for people to trade currencies, commodities and indices in a simple and enjoyable way. The social trading site is also a top CFD broker
- BerryFX – an online platform for converting currency and an international money transfer provider
- Pandle – free, cloud-based accounting software designed for small businesses and sole traders
