Organisation: Now in it’s 9th year, Quorum 15 was established to provide an independent and neutral environment for financial market leaders to exchange ideas and formulate responses to our industry’s most pressing challenges. Membership has grown from that initial meeting of 15 members to > 200 heads of desk from leading buy-side and sell-side firms who meet every quarter in 15 Quorums spanning four continents.

Enhanced advisory boards
One of the key ingredients to the tremendous growth of Quorum 15 has been ensuring that we identify what is really on the minds of our members and then debating them behind closed doors in an honest and transparent manner under the safety of a Chataham House Rules format.
Helping us identify the right topics and where appropriate, guest speakers, is an advisory board comprised of 2 buy-side and 2 sell-side members, which has successfully operated for the past 4 years. However, given busy schedules, getting everyone together has sometimes proved challenging. As we aim to provide members with as much notice as possible, of upcoming dates and agendas, we have decided to double the advisories everywhere we operate so that we can always have adequate buy and sell-side input in good time.
You will find a list of our enhanced boards listed within the ABOUT US page of our web site.
Q15 membership provides quarterly, targeted and balanced discussion amongst genuine buy-side, sell-side and Service Provider leaders at a fraction of the investment in time and money of a single conference. Quorum 15 is independent, self-financed and operates fairly by charging an annual membership fee. Neither a lobbying body nor industry association, we bring leaders together in frank discussion to identify areas of consensus that can be fed back into their respective associations.
Frankness is encouraged through our policy of operating under the Chatham House Rule. Fairness is ensured by our Competition Law policy which prohibits and discussion that could be considered in any way to be anti-competitive.
To ensure that topics, speakers and content of our Quorums are always relevant and the growth and direction of the firm remain fair and aligned with the interests of its members, we operate advisory boards comprised of a subset of members in each of our global Quorums. To ensure further fairness and diversity, we rotate the advisory board from time to time and maintain a Topics Register, where all members may anonymously nominate key issues they would like to be considered in any given Quorum.
Strategically Driven Outcomes
Q15-SP members join our buy and sell-side Q15 members for biannual executive breakfast meetings and at the annual Q15 evening event.
