CMC Markets began as a foreign exchange broker in 1989. Entrepreneur Peter Cruddas started the "Currency Management Corporation" with a £10,000 investment in a small office with just a desk and a phone. In 1996 Peter launched the world's first online forex trading platform. Since then CMC Markets has evolved into one of the world’s leading online CFD and financial spread betting providers, with over 33 million trades executed annually.
CMC Markets’ success is founded on its ability to deliver access to a wide range of trading products to clients that were previously only available to professional traders. Our multi asset technology allows our clients to trade equities, indices, currencies, commodities and treasuries. All of these products can be traded through one trading platform developed and supported by CMC Markets.
