Do I still get the same features as a standard account?

As a Professional trader, you’ll get some of the same features as a standard account – such as our range of markets, award-winning platforms and in-depth analysis – but you’ll waive access to negative balance protection and lower leverage limits. We will also assume you have a higher level of knowledge and experience.

However, as a Pro you’ll get some exclusive benefits on top of our normal offering, including margin rates from 0.25%, monthly cash rebates, access to credit facility, your own dedicated relationship manager and invites to hospitality events.
