ACI

Since 1956, ACI UK (Financial Markets Association) has enjoyed a proud and illustrious history representing the interests of individual members engaged in professional trading, broking, operations, regulatory and compliance activities in foreign exchange, money and other OTC markets.

Competence, Conduct and Compliance ACI UK is actively engaged with market regulators, member firms and industry influencers (including other trade associations and policy-making bodies) to inculcate and promote the highest standards of competence, conduct and compliance for financial market participants. The FX Global Code of Conduct was built on the foundations of the original ACI Model Code – used by central banks and major institutions globally as the de facto ‘standard’ for FX and MM business practice and operations - and ACI UK continues to influence and inform best market practice. In the UK we are particularly focused on encouraging cultural change within organisations to ensure that individuals at every level and in every function – from trading to compliance – are aware of and embrace their individual accountability and responsibility.

ACI is committed to supporting our member community to fulfil these obligations, including the adoption of new SMC&R accountability and responsibility obligations ACI’s accredited exams and professional qualifications – including the new Global Code Certificate - allow members to demonstrate and validate understanding of - and adherence to – the principles of the FX Global Code (and other national and international codes of practice and conduct). Through its Committee for Professionalism and other working groups, ACI also plays an important role representing the interests of individuals subject to organisation and/or industry action in respect of alleged conduct breaches.
