Fex Global Compliance and Conduct Committee
The FEX Global Compliance and Conduct Committee (CCC) is an independent body sourced from a panel of members that have been specifically selected.
The CCC has two primary goals:
- To examine the circumstances around and determine a course of action for a suspected or alleged breach of the FEX Global Operating Rules by a Trading Participant or Clearing Entity; and
- At the request of any one or more of FEX Global, a Trading Participant or a Clearing Entity, to review a Compliance Department decision.
Members of the panel are industry experts in their field and may be selected according to specific criteria.
