ACI Financial Markets Association (ACI FMA) is a leading global trade association representing the interests of the professional wholesale financial markets community. Established in 1955, ACI FMA is focused on enhancing best market practice and supporting market participants to adhere to principles of ethical conduct.
Our ACI Model Code was acknowledged as the first industry-wide Code of Conduct for OTC FX and related markets having been built on the original ACI Codes of Conduct from the 1970s. Subsequently updated to embrace the broader OTC community – and expanded from the dealing room through to back office operations – the ACI Model Code has strongly influenced many national Codes of Conduct but was retired in 2017 with the publication of the FX Global Code, the composition of which ACI FMA participated in, as well as other Code of Conduct initiatives.
ACI FMA’s suite of education, certification and attestation products and services, its committees and industry working groups and its global network of National Associations provides a comprehensive framework for education, support and advice for individuals and organisations operating in today’s financial markets.
