    Great Values

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    IG puts its money where its mouth is when it comes to values. It has real medical insurance benefits in the US. It has started donating 1% of its profits to environmental and education causes. Its target market is retail traders. Finance isn't always know for its human side. IG is that good scout in a sometimes profits-before-people industry.

    Cons

    It has a small market share in the US (but is working to grow it).
