CFDS (Contracts for differences)

Risk Warning: Trading Contracts for Differences (CFDs), carries a high level of risk to your capital, and is not suitable for all investors. Losses can exceed deposits.

    Vinco Wealth Management offers an advisory service that specialises in trading CFDs as part of a balanced investment proposition.

    CFD trading deals with price movement of instruments such as shares, indices, sectors, currencies and commodities without actually owning the underlying asset. The aim is to profit from the price moving in the client’s favour, which can be on a rising (going long) or falling price (going short).

    We prefer to trade with large capitalised companies based on the FTSE 100 and Dow Jones Industrial Average where liquidity is available when dealing in size. Margin requirements can be as low as 5% on the top 25 capitalised stocks complemented by greater worldwide broker coverage.

    Taking into consideration the high risk nature of the CFDs, we advise a stop loss on each trade and guaranteed stops are available dependant on the size of the transaction.
