Capital Spreads

Capital Spreads is a division of London Capital Group Holdings plc, an AIM listed Financial Services organisation.

As one of the UK's leading spread betting companies we pride ourselves on offering great value for money and an unrivalled customer service to our clients.

With a Capital Spreads account you can trade in many financial products using one of the several major currencies. We offer prices on UK, European and US shares, world indices, commodities, foreign exchange and bonds.

With typical spreads significantly tighter than those offered by most of our competitors we offer a better value service to our customer base. For example we quote just a 1 point spread on the FTSE Rolling Daily and DAX and the Euro/USD is only 2 pips.

As well as tight spreads, Capital Spreads’ customers benefit from a limited margin policy, where they are required to deposit only the maximum value of their stop-loss (plus 20%). This means that large sums of capital are not tied up funding the spread betting account, as is the case with other spread betting organisations.

We are unique in the industry as we offer newcomers to spread betting a Demo trading account which mirrors the live trading platform in every way (other than the number of products available and any manual intervention). With a virtual cash balance you can learn about spread betting and execute mock trades absolutely free of charge without risking your own capital.

Our customers are our most valuable asset and consequently we want your experience with us to be as harmonious as possible. If you have any problem or query please call or email us on the contact details at the top of the page.

We hope that you will have a profitable and enjoyable time with Capital Spreads.
