Welcome to
Axi Professional

Tailored accounts for more experienced traders

Greater flexibility by offering higher leverage than a standard Retail Account.

Products and pricing

Get access to our full suite of CFD trading products, including FX, Shares, Indices, Commodities, and Cryptocurrencies.

Client Funds

Professional client funds are segregated in the same way as those of retail clients.

Advanced trading tools

Weekly market analysis & VPS subscription.

Eligibility criteria

To qualify for an Axi Professional account, you must meet TWO of the following three criteria: 

Have you traded in significant size in leveraged markets an average of 10 times in each of the last four quarters? 

Have an investment portfolio, including cash, that exceeds €500,000.

Things to know?

We will treat your money protected in a segregated account, separate from our own money.

Financial Ombudsman Service: You have the right for redress if you are dissatisfied with the outcome of a complaint to us.  


Negative Balance: You will not be covered by Negative Balance Protection and may end up owing more than your initial deposit. 

Investor Compensation Fund (ICF): you will not be entitled to the Investor Compensation Fund  

Risk Warnings: We will not have regulatory obligation to provide you with the current risk warnings that we provide to retail clients or any standardised risk warning that is introduced in future in relation to transactions in complex financial products. 

Communications: There are certain regulatory requirements relating to the form and content of communications with retail clients that mean we must use language that is clear, fair and not misleading. As a professional client, we can use more sophisticated language when communicating with you. 

Best Execution: The application of our Best Execution policy may be different for Professional clients compared to Retail clients, although at present it is the same. 

Restrictions: You understand that the trading restrictions imposed on Retail clients are there to protect them and that by being classed as a Professional client without those restrictions you may lose more than if you were a Retail client. 


As an existing client, provided you meet eligibility criteria, we can switch you to a professional account using current terms and conditions. However, please note that you may lose some protections, as outlined elsewhere.

A Pro Account, as opposed to a Standard Account, simply refers to the pricing to clients, which has less spread but for which you pay a commission. Clients always have options to open both accounts.
