CMC Markets has been named the Financial Services Provider of the Year and Best Online Trading Platform by the readers of Shares Magazine, at an awards ceremony held on 10 November.
Now in its 15th year, the Shares Awards recognise and reward excellence within the financial sector and are voted for by Shares Magazine’s readership of stock market professionals, private investors and traders.
This year’s ceremony culminated with CMC Markets being named the Financial Services Provider of the Year for the fourth year running. The award is given to the company awarded the most votes across all of the categories, and it is the fifth time in the last six years that CMC Markets has picked up this accolade, having previously won in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
The Best Online Trading Platform award recognises CMC Markets’ intuitive, feature-rich Next Generation platform, which offers over 10,000 instruments to trade CFDs or spread bet on, and a wide range of trading tools including advanced charting, client sentiment and Reuters news.
The awards double comes hot on the heels of success in the Investment Trends 2016 survey of over 12,000 traders, where the platform was the highest rated for overall client satisfaction across all three product segments: financial spread betting (FSB), contracts for difference (CFDs) and foreign exchange (FX).
Matt Macklin, Head of European Distribution, at CMC Markets, said: “We are truly honoured that the readers of Shares Magazine have voted us winners of two awards this year. We are especially delighted to have been awarded Financial Services Provider of the Year for the fourth year running, while the Best Online Trading Platform reinforces our platform’s award-winning reputation. We remain committed to providing an unparalleled trading experience for our clients and the platform plays a significant role in that. It’s very encouraging that these awards recognise the hard work of our staff, who help to make our offering as strong as it is.”
