As you may be aware City Index and IFX Markets, which includes Finspreads, have joined forces. As a result, on the 31 March 2007, IFX Markets Ltd (IFX) will be undertaking a legal transfer of your account to City Index Ltd (CityIndex).
Please click here to see a letter that tells you exactly what the changes are and what you need to do in order to ensure that your open positions and your account are moved across to City Index. Please read this carefully. We have summarised the main points below.
What does this mean for you?
This move should have very little impact on your relationship with Finspreads. There will be no change to the Finspreads client services or trading team. Your Finspreads trading platform will remain the same as will the terms of your customer agreement.
The new City Index customer agreement is an exact copy of the existing IFX customer agreement for Finspreads, the only difference will be changes to the references to IFX reflecting the fact that your counterparty has changed to City Index.
You will continue to trade with Finspreads, which from the 31st March will be legally owned by City Index. City Index was established in 1982, and is a leading provider of CFD and spread betting trading services.

N.B. If you have an open position(s) and we have not received your consent to the novation letter and varied customer agreement, your account will be transferred to City Index and will continue to operate as before until we receive your acceptance or non-acceptance of the novation letter and varied customer agreement.
