To sum up the GWG Review

GWG adheres to strict regulatory guidelines of the CySEC. The broker features a very basic offer of CFD instruments, there are no CFDs on stocks nor cryptocurrencies. Spreads that the broker charges are enormous and are hardly competitive with FX/CFD industry leaders. The main advantage of the company is that it supports, like so many other brokers, the trading platform MT4. Unfortunately, the GWG broker does not inform its clients what deposit and withdrawal methods the company supports nor whether they offer a free demo account.
