PORTWARE COMMITS TO FX GLOBAL CODE OF CONDUCT

This commitment demonstrates FactSet’s continued investment in serving the needs of the front office

Portware, a FactSet Trading Solution, today reinforced its support for an open, transparent and effective foreign exchange market by committing to the guidelines outlined in the FX Global Code of Conduct. By signing the voluntary code of conduct, the Company pledges to uphold the six leading principles of the code: ethics; governance; execution; information sharing; risk management and compliance; and confirmation and settlement processes. Portware expects its clients to benefit from the commitment to more robust and open practices across their foreign exchange (FX) operations, as well as the increased market liquidity a more trusted FX market is anticipated to generate.

“We firmly believe in standards of transparency, fairness, liquidity, and ethical practices in the FX market,” said Christopher Matsko, Head of FX Trading Solutions, FactSet. “Signing the FX Global Code offers us the opportunity to represent the best interests of the foreign exchange community worldwide. We look forward to working with our clients, partners, and all of the signatories to enhance the effectiveness of the global FX marketplace.”
