What is a cash rebate?

Our rebate scheme puts money directly back into the accounts of eligible^ clients who trade with us in high volumes.

In the 2015/16 financial year, we paid out £10.5 million ​as cash rebates to our retail clients globally*.

​​We introduced the scheme as a way of rewarding our clients for their loyalty and trading activity and it's proved to be very popular, particularly as the earned cash rebate can either be withdrawn or used to open new trades.

Eligible clients receive rebates once they meet our minimum monthly notional traded volume requirements for an asset class (indices, forex or commodities). If you meet the requirements for one asset class, you automatically qualify for rebates for the other asset classes. 

If you are a high-volume trader of equities and would like to discuss cash rebates, please contact our Client Services team on 020 7170 8200.

Earning your cash rebates

CMC Markets

You could earn cash rebates if you regularly
trade FX, indices or commodities. We calculate your notional traded volume for each asset class to work out your rebate each month. We then pay the rebate you’ve earned into your account within the first few days of the following month. Find out more about how we calculate our monthly rebates and view our rebates conditions.

More reasons to trade with us

Over and above our cash rebates, you’ll be looking for competitive pricing, an advanced and robust trading platform, and a bespoke service that puts you first. Here at CMC Markets we’re able to fulfil all of this – and much more besides. We provide a dedicated relationship manager for all our high value clients, giving you the peace of mind that you can easily and quickly contact your own experienced member of our Sales Trading desk. ​​​

While we’re committed to our cash rebates scheme, our goal is to deliver tight spreads regardless of market volatility. Our typical forex spreads, for example, are a reflection of this aim. On the popular EUR/USD and USD/JPY FX pairs, our minimum spread is 0.7 points, with a typical spread of just 0.8 and 0.7 points respectively (based on global data for June 2016). This demonstrates that our minimum spreads are not dramatically different compared to the spread you would typically find available on our platform – unlike some other providers. 

We also offer competitive rates across over 9,500 instruments, including spreads from 1.4 points on US 30 and 0.3 points on Gold. So, if you do trade in large enough volumes to meet our qualifying criteria, you could potentially benefit from receiving a regular cash rebates payment alongside competitive and reliable pricing.

We’ve continued to win a number of key awards over recent years, helping to let us know we’re on the right track and reinforcing our position among the leaders in the industry. Among the accolades we received in 2016 were ‘Financial Provider of the Year’ (Shares Awards) and ‘Best Customer Service’ (Investment Trends 2016 UK Leveraged Trading Report).
