SIFMA Board and Executive would like to support its members through the financial storm. We are offering FREE places to the SIFMA European Technology Management Conference, equal to a saving of £499. Numbers are limited so please BOOK YOUR PLACE at this important industry event as soon as you can.

This year, with the crisis upon us, members are facing balance sheet constraints like never before, with some fighting for their very own survival. The conference and exhibition will provide a critical opportunity for leading investment banks, asset managers and technology vendors to discuss how shrinking budgets can be turned from a threat into an opportunity. 
This overriding theme will be addressed throughout the 2 days when tackling the key issues impacting European financial market technology-based support activities, including communications, operations, market data, information security, web and internet technology and information systems. Attend to become armed with the arguments to protect your IT spend going forward!
