Delegate Testimonials

Probably the most important thing is the opportunity to network with colleagues… to be able to spend time with each other within the industry, collaborating, looking at some of the bigger issues that we all face and working together to try to find solutions.

SIFMA’s Annual Meeting is an excellent forum for buy-side, sell-side, platforms, regulators – all market participants – to come together and hear one another’s perspectives.

I attend SIFMA’s Annual Meeting because 1) it’s a great networking opportunity, 2) it is a great way to learn, and 3) the industry is coming together to think about ways that we can collaborate to solve challenges.

It’s an opportunity to get a ton of useful information, network with the right people and really get an opportunity to see what’s going on in the industry, what’s current.
