Tech Track 100, compiled by Fast Track annually and published by the Sunday Times each September, lists Britain’s 100 fastest-growing private tech companies based on sales growth over the last three years.

Commenting on the No.1 ranking, David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Exchange, said: “To come top of the Tech Track 100 table is tremendous, unbiased confirmation of the outstanding progress LMAX Exchange has made over the past year in delivering a world class FX exchange. This progress has only been possible through the unparalleled quality of our technology combined with the unrivalled expertise of our team.

LMAX Exchange is the disruptive innovator in foreign exchange trading, and through exchange style execution brings complete transparency and a level playing field to the traditionally opaque OTC traded asset class.”
