I'm not an expert in the stock market but I've a question.

Are CFDs anonymous or how do stock market listed companies identify their investors?

1 Answer 1


Companies only know about shore owners. They do not know about owners of CFDs or other derivatives like options.

Remember that if you trade a CFD you do not own the stock - you enter into a contract to pay the difference between the stock price and some set value in the future. You are not investing in the company - you're making a bet about where the stock will go.
