Code of Conduct & Ethics

Membership of the ATI London requires members to meet standards set out by the association.

The London Association of Trading & Investment (ATI London) has established its code of conduct and ethical standards of every member, certified professional, approved trainer and approved training centre and/or provider that all must maintain.

Professionals within financial services, financial trading, and portfolio management, owe important duties to their clients, the market, the profession, and society.

Where these duties are set out in law or regulation the professional should comply with the requirements in both letter and spirit.

Members of the ATI London are also required to meet the standards set out within the association’s Code of Conduct.

In every decision or action, each member must refer to the Code of Conduct, considering if their course of action is honest, open, transparent, and fair.
