Founded in 1984, TraderForum counts more than 90 firms among its membership, and offers interactive meetings and conferences, along with thought-provoking surveys and research studies, to trading professionals seeking to advance and thrive in their industry.

At core meetings throughout the year, members experience unparalleled interaction with their network of peers, as well as industry-leading panelists, through roundtable discussions, plenary sessions, and collaborative workshops. Because brokers and vendors are not eligible to join TraderForum, members enjoy private, off-the-record contact with other buyside asset managers—ranging from some of the world’s largest fund complexes and institutional managers, to hedge funds, public funds, and investment boutiques.

TraderForum’s conferences are a great asset to our processes and a great way to stay abreast of our ever-changing industry.

Joseph Kennebeck, Head of Trading, Virginia Retirement System
