How Financial Spread Betting Companies Make Money Many investors wonder how financial spread betting companies make money when they don’t charge brokerage fees on bets placed. IG Group Holdings, a spread betting company in the United Kingdom, reported £569 million from global trading revenue in the 2018 financial year. Basics of Spread Betting Spread betting is a lot like gambling in that an investor speculates which way security prices will move.
