LONDON, November 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

CMC Markets [], one of the leading providers of spread betting and CFD trading, is celebrating a triple success at the 2013 Shares Awards. CMC Markets has been named as the winner of three categories: Best CFD Provider, Best Online Trading Platform and Financial Services Provider of the Year.

Now in its 12th year, the Shares Awards are held by Shares, the financial magazine, to recognise and reward excellence in the financial sector. The awards are based on votes by Shares' readership of stock market professionals, private investors and traders. The awards highlight technological innovation, improvements in customer service and the on-going improvement of the financial services industry.

The ceremony culminates with the presentation of the Financial Services Provider of the Year trophy, awarded to the company which collects the most votes across all of the categories combined, an award previously won by CMC Markets in 2011.

CMC Markets' triple success follows on the heels of winning Best Forex Spread Betting Company at the UK Forex Awards and two Money AM awards for Best Online Trading Platform and Best Online Charts earlier this year.

Peter Cruddas, CEO of CMC Markets, said: "It is an honour to pick up the Financial Services Provider of the Year award, and we are extremely proud to have been recognised by the trading community with not just one, but three awards. We believe our Next Generation platform provides our clients with an unparalleled trading experience, and it is fantastic that it has received such a mark of approval from our users. We also pride ourselves on the exceptional service we offer and we will not be resting on our laurels, but will continue to listen to the vital feedback that helps us enhance our proposition and optimise the spread betting and CFD trading experience."
