Hive Recommends


One of the core principles of The Finance Hive has always been to create a positive environment for the buy side and recommended partners to be open and to share. We want to ensure they have specific dialogue and tailored discussion as they seek the information and solutions needed personally, and for their businesses.

The format of a Hive Meeting day is tailored exclusively for senior people with the focus upon dialogue and interaction. We believe engagement comes from participation and relevance hence our meetings centre on Round Table discussions on topics requested by our buy side members & hosted by relevant Vendor Partners who moderate the discussion.

We expect to be running face-to-face meetings again by Autumn. The format of these meetings will depend on the global COVID19 situation and guidelines on social distancing and travel.

We have two partnerships available for our face-to-face meetings:

The Finance Hive presents a unique format which really works. It fosters participation and deep conversations about current and relevant causes
