Boston, May 24, 2016 – Until recent years, global regulators adopted a laissez-faire approach to FX regulation, but since the aftermath of the global financial crisis, the regulatory pendulum has swung the opposite way. As the global FX industry awaits pending clarification on existing laws, implementation timelines for new regulations have been extended, and new global codes of conduct are about to be released. How will these changes impact the FX industry in the years to come?
This report looks at how shifting volume patterns and a wide array of new regulations are impacting FX product demand, execution methods, and competitive landscapes across the world. It is based on qualitative Aite Group interviews with leading banks, FX brokers, various client segments, FX industry vendors, and e-FX execution venues since the latter part of 2015 and during the TradeTech FX USA conference in February 2016.
