Who are we?
«ACI The Financial Markets Association»
ACI is a 59 year old leading, global association of wholesale financial market professionals. ACI contributes to the market development by means of education & certification, market practices (The Model Code), technical advice and networking events. The association counts some 15,000 international members from more than 65 countries. ACI Luxembourg has almost 500 individual members. It is the mission of ACI Luxembourg to Approach, Connect and Include individual financial market professionals within our local and global network.
Members of ACI are in a large part engaged within the financial services, trading and sales environment in the global financial markets. Representing the Foreign Exchange, Interest Rate Products and other Securities, Banknotes & Bullions, Precious Metals, Commodities, various kinds of Derivatives and all related financial services. To grow our community and strengthen the Luxembourg Financial market place, we encourage both, individuals employed by regulated as well as unregulated institutions, to apply for membership.
Recognized as a multi-cultural, multilingual and cosmopolitan Association, ACI Luxembourg has always been able to surmount all major difficulties, and was also able to modernize the structures as well as to adapt itself successfully to the changes of the International Markets new Directives. Challenges were always addressed properly, and even during the merger and acquisition period and the recent financial crisis, the membership of our Association has continued to remain stable. Not only active on a local level, ACI Luxembourg is also well represented internationally by being a Member of several Executive Committees, including the Committee for Professionalism. During its 57 years of existence, ACI Luxembourg has organized several important events.
Memorable are the event in 1983 with the organization of the 25th Annual General Assembly' where about 1000 delegates from abroad attended. Another big event was in 2002 when our Association hosted the 6th ACI European Congress and the 44th Annual General Assembly of ACI. More over, a large number of conferences took place in our country, especially where distinguished speakers from all over the world have given their input with regard to Financial Markets. Last but not least I like to emphasize that a major important goal of our Association is EDUCATION. Every year seminars, conferences and meetings on a professional level are organized for our members. Since 2011, ACI Luxembourg offers its Members, in collaboration with IFBL, the fully certified ACI educational program consisting of the ACI Dealing Certificate, the ACI Operational Certificate and the ACI Diploma.
