Anthony Brocco, founder and Chief Executive Officer at Advanced Markets, commented:

“Formally committing to the FX Global Code of Conduct was a logical step for Advanced Markets given that, since inception, the firm has continually operated under the guidelines laid out within the Code. We don’t need to change any aspect of the way in which we operate, it’s simply business as usual for us. Full transparency and aligning interests with our clients have always been at the foundation of our business model.”

In May 2018, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) affirmed its commitment to the BIS Fx Global Code of Conduct.
