The answer to this is very subjective as there is no “best spread betting broker”.
There are so many different types of client who all trade differently with specific investment objectives.
So whilst one broker may be perfect for one customer, they may not be appropriate for another.
The market leader at the moment is IG, with 195,000 active clients and a wide variety of market. In fact I would say that most traders who spread bet or trade CFDs will have an account with IG (as either a primary or secondary account).
You can see our vetted spread betting brokers in our comparison tables are regulated by the FCA and do not include brokers we deem to treat customers unfairly on the Good Broker Guide.
All brokers listed on the goodbrokerguide.co.uk have review pages where clients can rank them and review for other traders. You can view these reviews by clicking on the review links in the spread betting comparison tables.
