We are a small dedicated team of developers and IT specialists in the finance sector. We have a special interest in FIX and Fix8 is a product of that interest. We are also committed to the next generation of FIX in a ULL context and will endeavour to support new versions of the protocol.

It is also the view of the core Fix8 team to encourage and promote participation in the project. We are always looking for new members to join us.
