EBA welcomes the publication of the May 2016 update of the FX Global Code

26 May 2016

The European Banking Authority (EBA) welcomes the enhancement of the FX Global Code (the Code) and the publication of its May 2016 update. The objective of the Code is to promote the integrity and effective functioning of the wholesale FX market. The Code's guidelines for responsible participation in the FX market are in line with the EBA's work fostering financial institutions' effective governance and enhanced consumer protection in all areas of financial products and services.
The Code has been developed by a working group made up of representatives from central banks and participants in FX markets. It is based on six leading principles: ethics, governance, information sharing, execution, risk management and compliance as well as the confirmation and settlement process.
