FX Global Code of Conduct Trickles Down
The ongoing adoption of the FX Global Code of Conduct is materially affecting the FX industry. Companies from the institutional space have already started adhering to the document. As the Global Code of Conduct is trickling down on all market participants, the institutional market players are the first after the central and the commercial banks to take the lead.
The following months will result in the whole industry that is executing FX market orders to commit to the FX Global Code of Conduct. The inevitability of the trickle-down process is warranted by the mandatory adoption that counterparts require in order to deal with clients.
As central banks adopted the Code, they have mandated commercial banks to follow. On their part, institutional market players are next in line, while the retail brokers will eventually need to sign up to the document if they want to deal with reliable institutional partners.
