Featured Broker: CMC Markets - Tight spreads, LSE listed, 58,000 active clients, 10,000 markets on an award winning platform (more info)
Saxo, is one of the largest brokers worldwide and provides direct market access to equities, bonds, futures and options as well as being one of the a largest forex providers via their own platform. The Saxo spread betting services was a white label of the London Capital Group platform, whose own brand is Capital Spreads.
The news comes after there have been significant changes at London Capital Group with a reported 75% staff turnover since Charles-Henri Sabet took the reigns and focsses on building the spread betting and forex broker back to profitability.
There is also a significant amount more competition in the spread betting industry that in 2009 when Saxo launched the service. Increased competition and a decline in active spread betting clients may lead to more consolidation in the sector. This may include more white label contracts being cancelled (like City Spreads, another LCG white label) or acquisitions (like City Index by Gain Capital or Cantor Index to Spreadex).
