Counterparties

Abshire-Smith Global Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority as a matched principle. We rigorously vet all of our counterparties, to clear 100% of our trades through UK FCA regulated counterparties. Operating an agency only business model means that Abshire-Smith is unable to hold proprietary positions, or take exposure to the markets.

We act as an intermediary between our clients through our 3 trading platforms, FIX/API connections and platform bridges, to liquidity providers, aggregators and major exchanges. (This means that we operate an STP/ECN/DMA trading model and do not run a “B Book” or make a market, to remove the conflict of interest between ourselves and our clients.
