Overview

It is with great disappointment that SIFMA must advise you that the Securities Industry Institute has been canceled.

For 69 years, SIFMA and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania have partnered to develop the industry’s rising leaders. Unfortunately, however, circumstances beyond our control have made it impossible to proceed with the Institute this year. This is due primarily to restrictions on non-essential travel implemented by many of SIFMA’s member firms and other organizations that impact the ability of our participants, sponsors and faculty to attend the program, as well as public health and travel advisories, difficulties with domestic air travel, and other recent events related to the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

SIFMA’s Business Continuity Planning (BCP) team continues to closely monitor COVID-19 and its impact on our industry and the markets. In the event of a significant incident that affects or has the potential to affect the operations of the financial system, SIFMA helps to coordinate the financial industry’s BCP efforts. For more information and resources for those at your firm entrusted with this critical role, please visit www.sifma.org/bcp.

Your registration fee is 100% refundable and will be automatically refunded within the next 30 days. You do not need to contact SIFMA for this refund. If you booked a hotel room at one of the SII sponsored hotels, the SIFMA events team will take care of the reservation cancellation.  Please contact other travel providers as needed to cancel other arrangements.

We appreciate your understanding and support.

“I was a graduate of the Securities Industry Institute…and the three-year program changed my life.  It gave me a sense of excitement and it broadened my horizons about what the industry was all about.” – John Taft, Vice Chairman of Baird

 

“You bring this great stew of people together and watch them interact and engage and everyone learns in that kind of environment… You make incredible friendships over the years and not just networking and business relationships, but great friendships.” – Joseph Sullivan, President & CEO of Legg Mason

  • Cancellations received between December 14, 2019 and January 31, 2020, will be subjected to a loss of 50% the tuition fee unless waived by SIFMA due to an approved firm substitution or waitlist request.

  • Refunds will not be given for no-shows, partial attendance or early departures.

Hotel Policy

All hotel reservations will now be made through direct reservation links to the SII participating hotels.  To reserve a hotel within one of the SII room blocks use the links provided at the end of SII registration, these links will also be available in the confirmation email.  Please note all links are year specific and you may not use links sent to other participants.

There is a five-night minimum (March 8-13, 2020) for all SII-designated hotels.  Any modification or cancellation that results in a penalty from the hotel will be charged back to the participant.  Some hotels have extended the room rate and will allow you to check in/out beyond the 5 nights of the SII program – check individual hotel links for details. Please contact Caitlin Sargent at [email protected] with all hotel inquiries.
