Ethical Conduct in Financial Markets

ACI and Codes of Conduct

ACI has always encouraged its membership to acknowledge, respect and adhere to principles of ethical behaviour. ACI has been an active part of the evolution towards new global standards in the Financial Markets. 

ACI is proud to have participated in the creation of the FX Global Code and believes that it provides an excellent framework for ethical conduct that will be enhanced and refined as market circumstances demand. 

As longstanding proponents and influencers of ethical conduct, ACI welcomes the progress made by the FX Working Group in respect of defining Code principles, governance and adherence.  An active member of the Market Participants Group reporting to the BIS FX Working Group, ACI contributed directly to this important industry initiative and will continue to contribute to the GFXC (Global Foreign Exchange Committee) that has assumed ownership and responsibility for the future development of the FX Global Code. ACI will also participate directly in ongoing market consultation on specific Code Principles.

On the ELAC Portal, ACI also supports ongoing learning and certification on the Global Precious Metals Code and on the United Kingdom Money Markets Code. 


ELAC — The E-Learning Attestation and Certification portal allows individuals to demonstrate adherence to Codes of Conduct on a continuous basis through a Personal Accreditation rating (PAR).
