HistoryEdit

FXall began operations in 2000 as a dealing platform for a consortium of 16 banking institutions, each owning between three and five percent of the company. By 2003 it had grown to having trading volume of $9bn overtaking its main rivals.[1]

In 2012 the company was acquired by Thomson Reuters for $625 million.[2]

After Thomson Reuters sold a majority stake in its Financial & Risk (F&R) unit to private equity firm Blackstone Group LP in 2018, the new business, now called Refinitiv, became the owner of FXall.[3]
