Welcome to ACI UK, the largest, truly global, association for financial market professionals
Founded in 1955, ACI has a proud and illustrious history supporting its global membership. Today, ACI represents the interests of members and associates in over 60 countries engaged in professional trading, broking, operations, regulatory and compliance activities in the foreign exchange, money and derivatives markets. In the UK, our activities are organised around three core pillars: Represent, Inform and Educate.
ACI UK is actively engaged with market regulators, commentators and member firms to promote the highest standards of conduct, across the board, for all market participants. The original ACI Model Code is acknowledged as the precursor to, and foundation of, the current FX Global Code (launched in May 2017) and applicable to all market participants. The content of the legacy Model Code continues to inform best possible market practice for financial markets practitioners. Supporting this end, ACI’s accredited suite of exams and professional qualifications – including the Global Code Certificate – (and considered still ‘a licence to deal’ in many countries) demonstrate practitioners’ understanding of, and reinforce adherence to, the Global Code (and other national and international codes of practice and conduct).
Regular events through the year bring the ACI UK community together in business, learning and social fora including timely and informed industry debates and other events. Social and networking events include the prestigious annual ACI UK Charity Golf Day which supports Variety UK – the Children’s Charity.
