We are the Association of Choice for Wholesale Financial Markets Participants

Ethical Conduct

Adherence to principles of ethical behaviour

The Model Code encapsulates the best possible practice of Code of Conduct in the financial markets industry -  including the latest market developments, best practice and technical advice for practitioners.

 ACI has always considered ethical conduct to be a key cornerstone of important values expected from Financial Market participants – as such ACI have always encouraged its membership to acknowledge, respect and adhere to principles of ethical behaviour.  

ACI has been an active part of the evolution towards the new global standards being developed by the BIS Single FX Code and the FICC Market Standards Board, for global adherence. We are proud to endorse this work and to have formed part of its history.
