It is always exciting when a member of the electronic Forex trading world is recognized outside of FX for positive achievements.
FCA regulated multi-asset exchange (MTF) LMAX Exchange has announced that it has been selected to this year’s The Leap 100 list of the most exciting, fast-growing companies in the UK.
The Leap 100 is organized by London-based business news source City AM, and law firm Mishcon de Reya. All the companies chosen to The Leap 100 have a recent history of rapid revenue growth, while still showing the ambition for more. The organizers also looked for success in and commitment to achieving innovation, brand recognition and expansion into new markets. Respecting the human qualities that make a leap into the unknown possible, they sought firms with teams displaying leadership and tenacity on their journeys.
With a client base spanning over 90 countries, LMAX Exchange is the leading FCA regulated MTF for FX and is one of the UK’s fastest growing technology firms. In 2015 LMAX Exchange focused its international expansion on Asia Pacific by adding a Tokyo-based exchange, and sales and operations hub in Hong Kong.
David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Exchange, had the following to say:
Inclusion in The Leap 100 2016 is recognition of both the company’s success and the appetite for technology innovation that creates a more transparent, fairer and level playing field within the industry. LMAX Exchange is Britain’s greatest fintech success story. What we have created is not just a company that is profitable and rapidly growing, but a blueprint for global transparency that is driving long term disruption in the largest asset class in the world.
