  • Limited Risk Account

    Through our Limited Risk Accounts, you can trade across thousands of markets – the same as our Standard Accounts – with the added protection and knowledge that you can never lose more than the funds you have in your account. 

    Limited Risk Account: What it Offers You 

    Limited Risk on All Trades

    Limited Risk Account

    All trades made through the Limited Risk Account have a Guaranteed Stop Loss Order* (GSLO) attached.

    A GSLO is an order that automatically closes out your losing trade at a predetermined level set by you, regardless of market gapping.

    GSLOs offer you the maximum protection, even in volatile markets.

    As spread betting is a form of leveraged trading, there is the risk that if prices move against you, you could lose more than the funds you have in your account. However, a Limited Risk Account negates this risk by applying a GSLO to all of your trades. This means that you will never lose more than your initial deposit when spread betting through a Limited Risk Account with Finspreads.

    Find out more about how GSLOs could benefit you and help limit your potential losses through our dedicated Risk Management section.

    *A GSLO will incur a small premium upon trade opening. Please see the market information sheets located on our Trading Platform for more information. 

    50p Stake Size

    Through your Limited Risk Account, you can benefit from a minimum stake size of just 50p. 

    Take a position across thousands of financial markets, including major indices such as the FTSE 100, for a stake size of just 50p.
