The Foreign Exchange Professionals Association (FXPA) has announced the latest addition to its membership, this time adding Thomson Reuters as a fully integrated member, according to an FXPA statement.
The FXPA is a Washington-based organization for the foreign exchange (FX) industry that collectively represents the shared interests of brokers and market participants in the FX industry. The multinational group, along with its growing membership composition, was initially formed with the intent on advocating the interests of the FX industry to key regulators and policymakers via education, research, and transparency.
