The Good Broker Guide is a London based guide to trading brokers and investment accounts for clients based in the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and Australia.

The Good Broker Guide was founded in 2015 by Richard Berry. Richard has been a broker for 20 years most recently at Investors Intelligence and previously a multi-asset derivatives broker at MF Global (Man Financial). Richard started his career working as a private client stockbroker at Walker Crips and Phillip Securities (now King and Shaxson) after interning on the NYMEX oil trading floor in New York and London IPE in 2000.

What we do and who we do it for

Our objective is to present the best pricing, accounts and compare the features that are important to traders. By comparing the key features we can offer a quick way to compare the best choice therefore allowing traders to make an informed choice when choosing a new or switching providers. Sponsored and featured brokers sometimes appear first but we also include brokers we do not have financial relationships with. We provide independent comparisons and may receive a form of compensation for including some companies in the tables.

For institutional clients, we provide access to prime brokerage key contacts through prime-brokers.net

Good Broker Guide Awards

Our awards are based on the broker reviews traders leave for their brokers. We ask traders to rank their broker based on a broker’s:

  • Trading platform
  • Customer service
  • Mobile apps
  • Spreads and pricing
  • Market range
  • Trade execution speed

How we rank and compare brokers

The comparison tables on goodbrokerguide.co.uk are sortable so you can rank brokers based on what is important to you.

If a broker has paid to advertise in a prime position on the tables it will be marketed as “Featured”

Our methodology for default rankings include industry expert’s direct experience and is also based on (but not limited to) the below:

  • Pricing and spreads
  • Margin requirements
  • Trading platforms available
  • How long a broker has been established
  • Added value services such as research, news, signal and charting
  • Balance sheet, financial visibility such as LSE listed, customer client funds protection
  • Markets and order types available
  • Payment and withdrawal methods
  • Private client and corporate services available
  • If it is available to overseas clients, translated websites and foreign speaking staff
  • Overall service and reputation in the industry

The data gathered is sourced from the broker’s official websites and often collaborated directly with the broker.

Margin and spread information are updated on a monthly basis.
