FX Week USA

This flagship event is The Conference to attend for the institutional foreign exchange industry: a day with serious content, for the serious players in the institutional FX space. And lots of networking.<br /> <br /> The industry has probably evolved more in the last three years than in the previous ten - that&#039;s the view of many long-standing currency veterans. But the rapid evolution is also putting a strain on existing infrastructures, relationships and processes, and the breaks and shifts reverberate far and wide. Liquidity, credit, regulation, conduct issues and last look are just a few of the issues the industry needs to work out. Meanwhile, markets remain sedate even in the face of escalating geopolitical tensions. FX Week USA is the place for industry leaders from the buy-side and the sell-side to gather and discuss new ideas and trends, to network with peers and to meet clients.

North America's leading event for the buy-side & sell-side FX community

  • The Conference for asset managers, pensions funds, insurance companies, hedge funds, corporates, central banks and investment banks.
  • Over 230 senior-level FX professionals from the buy- and sell-side community come together to LEARN, DEBATE and NETWORK.
  • Join us on July 11th at the Metropolitan Club in the heart of New York City.
