CMC Invest is the investment arm of CMC Markets, which enables traders to invest in over 1,000 UK shares and US stocks with zero commission as well as ETFs through general investing accounts and stocks and shares ISAs.

At the moment CMC Invest is available through invitation only and new customers will get a £50 welcome bonus when they start investing.

We covered the potential split of CMC Markets into two separate entities to help differentiate between traders and investors back in March when CMC Markets was buying back shares from the market.

The new offering will make CMC Invest a rival to IG’s investment offering, coincidentally, IG has just separated the trading and investing clients from each other as well.

For a while, zero commission brokers have been seen as a marketing gimmick, but now as major brokers like Interactive Brokers look to compete in the free investing market, the bigger platforms seem to be moving to embrace low-cost longer-term investors.
