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?


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.
