The Full FX: A Message from the Owners
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: February 8, 2021
In the months since the closure of Profit & Loss the remarkable reaction from the FX industry has illustrated one thing – the need for an informed, independent, voice in the FX industry.
Thanks to this generous and heartfelt reaction from so many industry participants, Michelle Hemstedt and I have decided to launch The Full FX with the intention of filling the gap. We will also be joined by our former colleague Cindy Jiang. The Full FX will primarily be about original content, however it will also cover the important news stories and releases in the industry. We hope to leverage my 43 years (and counting!) experience in the FX industry to highlight what is good – and, if necessary, not so good – in our industry, as well as Michelle and Cindy’s countless contacts on the all-important commercial side of the business. We have to eat!
The demise of Profit & Loss remains a sad footnote to the global pandemic and it is not our intention to replicate that model in the hope that 2021 brings greater luck. The Full FX will hopefully inform readers, occasionally infuriate them, but always feed the debate that is necessary at industry level if the FX world is to evolve and meet what will still be considerable challenges in the months and years ahead.
The good news for The Full FX is that there remains much to discuss – not least the increasing creep of new technologies and assets into the FX space. We sincerely hope you will support us as we attempt to provide an independent platform for debate by registering for our weekly newsletter and visiting our website, www.thefullfx.com on a regular basis.
