Emerging Markets EU Members Meeting

21 March 2024
Venue: IET London: Savoy Place

Tailored exclusively for:
Heads of Trading, Heads of Trading Technology, Senior Traders, Treasury Heads, Currency Managers, and our Hedge Fund, Sovereign Wealth Fund, Pension Fund and Corporate members…

Our Emerging Markets (EM) network, covering FX and Fixed Income markets, was born through referrals from our established Fixed Income and FX communities who told us they wanted a network in which they could support each other and focus on the biggest challenges and opportunities associated with EM.

Having ran our first EM members meeting in 2023, our EM network has since grown to 100+ buy side members from across Europe. Our EM members meeting is dedicated to helping EM buy side heads address the biggest liquidity and technological challenges associated with EM.
Our EM members represents trading heads and senior traders with an EM remit, from the top bracket of asset managers and hedge funds, and the members meeting is open to 60 buyside attendees, 9 solution providers and 3 sell side.

Your Peer Group Is Your Secret Source – Closed doors, Open minds, Chatham House Rule applies.



Our roundtables are all supported and led by an industry leader, facilitating group conversation, designed to help drive forward key market structure and technological initiatives

The framework of our residential agendas is designed around roundtable discussions. All discussions operate under Chatham House Rule, allowing for an open dialogue and free flow of ideas in a trusted setting.

Solution Spotlights

Our spotlights allow partners to showcase their solution in a private room, enabling members to see it in action, evaluate with their peers and provide direct feedback

Based on the most common investment areas within our buy side community, we match our members with recommended third party technology vendors.


Our educational masterclasses provide a more in-depth, hands-on private workshop led by an industry thought leader in a particular field, promoting an interactive learning experience

Each masterclass is open to 12-15 buy side attendees, grouped based on a common learning. This classroom style format allows the group to deep dive into a particular area, led by an industry expert.

1-2-1 Meetings

We incorporate dedicated 20-minute 1-2-1 meeting slots to connect members with other industry leaders who can help them with their key projects across the year

By understanding members most pressing concerns, we pair meetings with buy side members who are best placed to help each other with their own internal initiatives, technological investment areas and projects.
