FIX Trading Community Sets Up Brexit Working Group, Calls for Members

The FIX Trading Community is calling for members to join a Brexit Working Group designed to help FIX members and other industry participants prepare for the challenges presented by the UK leaving the European Union. The goals of the group are to identify and review requirements for potential changes to technical or business practices that could occur as a result of changes in regulation or practices caused by different outcomes of Brexit.

FIX acknowledges that the impact of Brexit on its members will not be clear until negotiations are completed, but says the working group should become a ‘go to’ technical forum for other industry groups such as the Investment Association (IA), International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) and Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME).

The group is looking for co-chairs representing industry sectors, as well as individuals working directly with Brexit preparations, and individuals with an understanding of the data or operational implications of Brexit. If you are interested in joining the working group, email fix@fixtrading.org.
