Refer your friends

Did you know you and a friend could each earn $2,500 when you refer them to City Index?

After you refer them, your friend simply needs to open an account with us, upgrade to Professional and then meet the deposit and trade requirements detailed below for you to both receive a cash bonus.

Referring a friend only takes a moment, and you can invite up to 5 friends a month – meaning the more friends you introduce, the more bonuses you can earn.

How do I make referrals?

Step 1
Select ‘Refer your friends’ below and fill in our simple referral form.
Step 2
Your friends will receive an email invitation to open a City Index account.
Step 3
Receive your cash bonus once your friends complete their qualifying trades.

What are the deposit and trading requirements?

Once your friend has opened a City Index trading account, they’ll need to undertake the following steps for you both to receive your bonus:

Upgrade to Pro: Successfully upgrade to Professional client status
Deposit: Make a minimum initial deposit of $5,000
Trade: Meet the trading requirements:
At least 10 equity CFD Trades (excluding US shares) to a minimum notional value of $2,500,000

- OR -

At least 10 trades of FX, Indices, Bonds, Commodities, Metals, Interest rates or Options CFDs to a minimum notional value of $30,000,000


To refer your friends, you need to complete our simple referral form, which is available here. We’ll then email your friend with details of the bonus offer and instructions on how to open a City Index trading account. You may also wish to contact your friend separately to tell them that you’ve referred them, and to expect an email from us.

Your friend will need to open a City Index trading account and upgrade to Professional, then meet the minimum deposit and trading requirements detailed above. Your friend has 90 days from the time they open their account to make the necessary qualifying trades. Once your friend completes the trading requirement, we will credit both your accounts with the relevant bonus amount.

You’ll receive $2,500 for each friend you refer who successfully meets the qualifying criteria. You can see details on the deposit and trading criteria here.

We will credit both your accounts with the relevant bonus amount within 3 weeks of the 90 day period after your friend opens a City Index account ending.

You can refer up to 5 friends each month, which means the more friends you refer, the more you could earn.
