LONDON, January 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
CMC Markets [http://www.cmcmarkets.co.uk], one of the leading providers of spread betting and CFD trading, has been named the CFD provider with the highest overall client satisfaction, and has picked up multiple awards for its platform and mobile technology in the 2013 Investment Trends UK Leveraged Trading Report.
The report has named CMC Markets as the spread betting and FX provider with the best mobile and tablet app, and the spread betting, FX and CFD provider with the best platform features.
Alongside providing the greatest overall satisfaction for CFD traders, CMC Markets was ranked top in no fewer than 13 separate CFD service areas. For spread betting, CMC Markets was also ranked in the top three for twelve separate service areas.
80% of CMC Markets' spread betting and CFD clients rated its platform features either good or very good, the strongest results in the market. The results also show that 77% of CMC Markets' spread betting clients polled selected them as their main provider due to the strength of the platform offering.
In addition, three quarters of CMC Markets' spread betting clients polled believed the provider's mobile and tablet offering was good or very good, higher than any other provider in the market.
This recognition follows hot on the heels of CMC Markets' success in late November at the 2013 Investors Chronicle and Financial Times Investment Awards, where they won the Best Spread Betting App award.
Peter Cruddas, CEO of CMC Markets, said: "It is a privilege to be recognised for providing our CFD clients with the highest overall level of satisfaction in the industry. We are also very pleased to receive such a ringing endorsement of our platform and mobile technology from our clients. We have invested an awful lot of time and money to ensure our Next Generation platform hits the mark with the trading community, and it is fantastic to see the hard work paying off in our clients' experience and satisfaction.
"The report also reinforces the fact that the way people trade has changed, and mobile technology has come to the fore. Roughly 73% of traders now trade via their mobile, a figure that is forecast by the Investment Trends study to hit 86% next year. With this in mind, we have doubled our efforts to meet and exceed clients' evolving needs with our advanced custom-built mobile apps, and it is a great to see this recognised."
