Our ambition is to drive positive change not just in the way people trade foreign exchange but also in the world around us.
At LMAX Group our goal is to:
Build a world class culture that inspires people to create a positive impact both at work and beyond. That’s why we are wholeheartedly committed to Diversity, Inclusion and Environmental action.
Through our partnerships with charities such as Kensington & Chelsea Foundation we are able to make a difference in the local communities in which we operate, creating a positive impression for people at all stages of life and from all backgrounds.
On a global scale, we have forged a recent partnership with The Philippine Reef & Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc. to inspire people to take action for biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.
