GEORGE OSBORNE’S FX REGULATION SPEECH – CEO OF PRIME WEALTH GROUP RESPONSE: “WITHOUT STRONG IMPLEMENTATION CONTROLS THE NEW MEASURES WON’T MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE.”

Patrick Butler, CEO of Prime Wealth Group & CIO of Omada Capital, said:

“The Chancellor’s proposals are a reasonable response to a serious issue. Crucially, however, what hasn’t been discussed is how these measures and control mechanisms will be implemented. Broader licensing rules, tighter controls on manipulations such as delaying order flow and increasingly stringent reviews are only effective if a sophisticated automated system is introduced to monitor this huge market. Without it, the new measures won’t make a real difference.

Naturally the global nature of FX means that there are limits on the extent to which UK regulation can control the market, however there is no doubt that authorities on both sides of the Atlantic are moving in the same direction and it is good to see the UK’s undoubted leadership in FX volumes reflected in its government’s  leadership of the campaign to eliminate market abuse.”
