Leadership & Governance

The FXPA Board includes participation from the full spectrum of institutional FX market participants, including buy-side firms, banks, clearing houses, corporate end-users, exchanges, principal traders, technology providers, trading platforms, and trade repositories. The number of Board seats reflects the size of the FXPA’s membership and encourages participation from members of different types, sizes and levels of market activity.

The Board of Directors is supported by a series of committees, which are open to all members. Each Committee will focus on specific industry areas (i.e., operations, legal and compliance, membership, technology, media relations, market structure), and will report to the Board of Directors.

Diversity of membership is embedded in FXPA’s organizational construct to ensure wide representation of the professional FX market. Founding members epitomize this diversity – including the buy-side, exchanges, clearing houses, trading platforms, MTFs, technology companies, banks and non-bank market participants.
