Financial Spreads was launched in 2007 and offers over 1,000 markets including the popular forex, stock index and commodities markets as well as UK, US and European shares. Clients can trade both spread bets and CFDs from the same account. Since 2007, Financial Spreads has remained an easy-to-use, friendly, "does what it says on the tin" brand with tight spreads. Financial Spreads is not a Market Marker and their prices track the underlying market. This removes a potential conflict of interest with clients. If a client makes a profit or loss on a trade, it is because the market traded at the relevant level, it's not because Financial Spreads moved their derivative / version of the underlying market. Financial Spreads is a trading name of Clear Investor Ltd. which is an appointed representative of FINSA Europe Ltd., company no: 07073413. FINSA Europe Ltd. is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), registered number 525164. Due to the FCA regulation clients are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
