The Best CFD Brokers of 2019: Rankings Revealed!

March 12, 2019 16:00

Every CFD broker claims to be the best. So how can you really know who has the best offer in 2019?

Deutsches Kundeninstitut (DKI) runs an annual survey in Germany to figure out the best CFD broker of the year, and in February we were excited to announce that Admiral Markets UK Ltd was crowned Germany's Best CFD Broker for 2019!

But what does this mean? How was the vote decided? And how did we score in comparison to Germany's other top CFD brokers? We'll be breaking down the award categories and rankings in this article, so you can see what is involved in being named 2019's best broker.

About the Awards

DKI's 2019 CFD Broker Customer Survey collected the opinions of 1,015 active traders between October 2018 and January 2019 to determine the rankings of Germany's best CFD brokers.

Survey participants were asked to rate their preferred CFD broker, ranking them in the categories of trading, customer service, trading platform, value for money ratio, overall satisfaction and mobile trading.

Each broker was then given a point score and star rating for each category, with the scores of the top eight CFD brokers published on DKI's website.

Trading Platform Rankings

In the trading platform category, Admiral Markets UK Ltd came second, with five stars and a score of 14.7 out of 15.

Mobile Trading Rankings

While Admiral Markets was ranked as the best CFD Broker for 2019 overall, mobile trading was the category in which we could see room for improvement. We were given a score of 4 out of 5, and a 3-star rating.

The good news is that our product team is hard at work on new features to improve both our desktop and mobile trading environments, so stay tuned for more updates later in 2019!
