LMAX Exchange has been ranked the UK’s sixth fastest growing technology company in the 2015 Sunday Times Tech Track 100 league table, marking the third consecutive year (#1 in 2014 and #15 in 2013) the company has featured in the prestigious list based on annual sales growth over the last three years.

The announcement continues to validate the traction LMAX Exchange has achieved in the FX market place and since launch with:

Over $4 trillion has been traded on LMAX Exchange to date
Offices located in the UK, US, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand
Global client base 90+ countries
First full year of profitability achieved in 2014

This growth comes at a time when the FX trading market is coming under increasing scrutiny, with regulators and market participants calling for greater fairness and transparency. The recent Fair and Effective Markets Review report from UK regulators has put the UK at the heart of this international debate.

Since launch in 2010, LMAX Exchange has been leading this phase of market transformation, delivering technology that disrupts legacy practices in a way that is profitable and transparent for all market participants.

David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Exchange, commented on the accolade, “LMAX Exchange has consolidated its leading position in Britain’s fintech sector, pushing standards for global transparency at a time when the FX market has needed it most.”

“Inclusion in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 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.”
