BUY SIDE ONLY | CHATHAM HOUSE | TRUSTED
It started with a breakfast at Hive HQ in 2019. We invited a closed group of equity heads to tell us what they wanted to see and be part of. This is what they said and this is what we will continue to do:
- Create a strong network of domestic and international peers to soundboard ideas and brainstorm on solutions
- Lobby for change and create a less fragmented buy side voice to help drive innovation and efficiencies with tech providers
- Help to navigate the tech provider landscape, get referrals from other buy side and understand why they are using them
- We want givers, not takers: make sure the network is carefully curated so everyone has skin in the game by growing through recommendation and advocacy
- Keep all conversations buy side only unless there is a compelling reason to involve a recommended third-party. Ensure qualification is rigorous.
- Focus on topics that are fresh and engaging for the whole network
- Make sure we are speaking to the most relevant people and subject matter experts to ensure conversations are valuable – go beyond just heads of trading
- Create regular touch points and bring the community together to discuss issues and provide each other with updates on a frequent basis

I’ve found being a member of The Finance Hive very helpful. It’s allowed me to discuss relevant topics that I’m focusing on with a diverse group of my peers and get a sense of how they‘re approaching things. This has given me useful insights for keeping senior management up-to-date with how we compare to other firms.
