FIX Protocol Limited (FPL) is the industry standards organization at the heart of the global electronic trading community, with a membership that spans buy and sell-side firms, trading venues, regulators and vendors. Dedicated to the development of standards that address the real business issues impacting the global trading community, FPL has proven fundamental in facilitating many of the electronic trading trends that have emerged over the past decade.
Led by market participants that work in the trading environment, FPL is able to accurately comprehend current market challenges and opportunities, and develop initiatives ultimately focused on enabling the trading community to achieve increased transparency, optimized efficiencies and reduced costs.
Every FPL event is developed by its members, enabling each event to benefit from the unique breadth of expertise and depth of market knowledge that only comes from working in the trading environment every day. Every aspect of the FPL Americas Trading Conference has been developed by senior market participants active in the FPL Americas Regional Committee, including:
- The careful formulation of all agenda topics to ensure the critical issues and challenges impacting market participants are fully addressed
- The selection of all speakers, to ensure each is chosen 100% based on their knowledge and experience to ensure complete impartiality
- The creation and pricing of all sponsorship packages to ensure they offer maximum value and extensive marketing opportunities
- All delegate pricing to enable FPL to cover its event costs, without making cost a decision making factor
The knowledge and experience contributed by this group has led to the development of an event that has been truly created by the American trading community, for the American trading community. If your firm is active within the electronic trading space we encourage you to find out how you can get involved in FPL.
