Why is it important for the whole Trading community to adopt the principles of the FX Global Code of conduct?

There is a commonly held view that the new FX Code of Conduct only applies to the sell side – introduced as a punishment for historical wrongdoings.  As a consequence, very few corporates have signed up.

This view could not be any further from the truth.  The Code is not about past misdeeds, but about building a better industry for the future, defined by greater consistency, robust audit trails and objective assessment of trading performance. It is therefore something that the whole industry should recognise and follow.

In this webinar, Neill Penney, MD & Co-Head, Trading at Thomson Reuters, and Frances Hinden, VP Treasury Operations at Shell, share their thoughts on the progress of the Code thus far. They also outline why corporates should engage with the Code to shape a better future for the industry.
