Washington, DC: The Foreign Exchange Professionals Association (FXPA) is now offering additional institutional categories of membership effective January 1, 2016. The new Associate level categories are designed for smaller buy side and technology firms, as well as regional and private banks.
FXPA is also revising its top tier membership categories. The Founders’ Council level, which was available during the Association’s formation year, is now closed, while a Governing Council membership has been created for new, top-tier members that join after the first year. The Full Member category has been re-designated as a Supporting Membership.
Associate Member categories are being introduced for buy side firms with assets under management below $500 million or fewer than 20 staff; technology providers with revenues below $50 million or fewer than 20 staff; and regional/private banks that fall outside the top 20 FX banks as ranked by trading revenue/volume.
The membership categories are available now for the 2016 calendar year.
FXPA’s members include: BATS Global Markets; BNY Mellon Global Markets; Bloomberg Tradebook; CalPERS; Campbell & Company; Citadel LLC; CME Group; Colorado PERA; Cürex; EBS BrokerTec; FastMatch; GFI Group; Intercontinental Exchange (ICE); Integral Development Corp; LCH.Clearnet; LMAX Exchange; Moscow Exchange; Nasdaq; Singapore Exchange (SGX); State Street Global Markets; Thomson Reuters; Traiana; and Virtu Financial.
