Consistent, reliable and neutral FX trading

The award-winning LMAX Exchange is the first MTF for FX authorised and regulated by the FCA. Servicing brokers, funds, corporates, asset managers and banks and professional traders, the unique LMAX Exchange business model combined with unparalleled technology addresses the fundamental problems with the FX market, and solves two key industry problems:

  • The lack of transparency of the true cost of OTC traded FX
  • The lack of precise, consistent & reliable FX trade execution

LMAX Exchange delivers a unique vision for global FX trading - a transparent, neutral, level playing field for all market participants, regardless of status, size or activity levels. LMAX Exchange is not a market-maker, and unlike some ECNs, the open order book is driven by streaming, non ‘last look’ limit orders supplied by top tier banks and institutional liquidity providers.

LMAX Exchange - key trading advantages

  • Unparalleled execution quality - average trade latency is 4 ms
  • Pre & post-trade transparency - an open order book with no ‘last look’ or rejections
  • Strict price/time priority matching - totally neutral and anonymous trade matching
  • Complete range of clearing solutions
  • Award-winning FX trading venue - recognised for excellence and innovation
