Established in 1996, Financial Technology Forum (FTF) is the premier network for technology leaders from major investment management firms, serving as a “think tank” for members to interact and develop their professional skills.

FTF members come together three times a year for plenary sessions, breakout discussions and collaborative workshops that provide members with an in-depth and comprehensive review of the most important issues in financial technology and management. In addition, FTF oversees monthly polling, maintains a password-protected website, hosts member-driven webcasts and conducts a comprehensive benchmark survey each year to allow members to measure practices against their peers.

FTF Meetings

Membership includes three Workshops as well as impromptu, topic-driven events including regional meetings and webcasts. All events are interactive, and driven by the members' current needs and interests. Firms are welcome to send up to two individuals to each event.

Presentations and recordings from all workshop sessions are made available on FTF's members-only website.
