Promotion Integrity

One of our highest priorities is to make sure we don’t advertise our platform as ”work from home", “investing” or "making easy/ sure money”, as such promotions would interfere with the integrity of our company. Our main goal is to assure Plus500’ traders aren’t being misled with inaccurate information. We take extreme measures to make sure that all Plus500 promotions, both internally as well as by 500Affiliates, emphasize the high risk involved in CFD trading and do not promote any false advertisements.
