IG Group has launched its execution-only stockbroking offering in the Netherlands. This enables Dutch retail investors to manage an increasing proportion of their investments on a single platform.
IG Group first launched its stockbroking offering in the UK and Ireland six months ago and it has been well received by new and existing clients. The company is committed to rolling out the product across many of its global locations in the coming years. This launch in its Dutch office is the first of three planned country launches in the next 12 months.
The platform has the best of IG’s 40 years of trading experience and technology at its heart. It provides investors with real-time transparent pricing, sourced from multiple pricing venues, and easy access to key international stock markets with market-leading commission rates.
The platform offers live pricing on over 4500 shares and is supported by analytical tools, charting, market news and videos. It is also available via a diverse suite of phone and tablet apps to ease accessibility. Clients will also be able to trade commission-free during their first month of online trading before 1 July 2015.
