The Electronic Trading Information Template (the “Template”) has been created through the collaborative efforts of five professional associations, namely the Alternative Investment Management Association, Asia Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, Asia Trader Forum, FIX Protocol Limited and Hong Kong Investment Funds Association.

The Template has been developed in response to the amendments to the Code of Conduct for Persons Licensed by or Registered with the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC Code of Conduct”) and the Fund Manager Code of Conduct (“Fund Manager Code”) relating to electronic trading, which will take effect on 1 January 2014. The purpose of the Template is to help streamline, to the extent possible, the due diligence process of firms that are seeking to obtain electronic trading services by establishing a common framework for the request for information from, and disclosure of information by, electronic trading service providers.
