Mission Statement

FIX Trading Community is built around clear standards

FIX Protocol is part of the fabric of capital markets. Formed in 1991 at the dawn of electronic trading, FIX connects the global ecosystem of venues, asset managers, banks/brokers, vendors and regulators by standardising the communication among participants. This is accomplished by following 4 key principles:

  1. Creating and maintaining robust open standards across the whole ecosystem from pre-trade to market data to settlement.
  2. Providing advice and counsel to regulatory bodies in a transparent and unbiased way.
  3. Seeking ways to improve the trading process front to back for the global financial services industry.
  4. Providing our members with a neutral, collaborative environment to come together through member-driven conferences and other critical forums to promote, support and educate.
