LONDON, November 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
CMC Markets [http://www.cmcmarkets.co.uk], one of the leading providers of spread betting and CFD trading, has been announced as Financial Provider of the Year and Best Spread Betting Service for 2011 by the readers of Shares Magazine.
The aim of the Shares awards, which was launched in 2001, is to provide traders and investors with a voice in which to recognise the innovative and high quality service and products from companies in the world of retail investment.
Doug Richards, CEO of CMC Markets, who accepted the awards at Grosvenor House on Thursday 10th November said: "Since we launched, our goal has always been to become the world's leading online financial services business. Today's accolade reflects our efforts to respond to the needs of our customers, bringing them the best possible trading experience through innovative technology and award winning education. We will not stop here however; we will continue to listen to our customers and deliver what they ask for to the highest possible standard."
Russ Mould, editor of Shares Magazine said: "To win one award at the event is difficult but to win this one particularly so, as it is based upon the number of votes collected across all of the award categories.
"CMC has prevailed yet again following its victories in 2010 when the firm scooped Best Spread Betting Service and Best Investor Education. Our readership is well informed, market facing and highly demanding, so to consistently win trophies is a huge compliment."
