Advisory boards

To ensure the agendas only focus on what is most important to its members, an advisory board comprised of buy and sell-side members has been established in each location. In the run-up to each quorum, three or four key topics are identified, put to the vote and from there the primary and secondary topics are determined along with any guest speakers.

Quorum 15 takes its governance responsibilities very seriously and operates under both the Chatham House rule and a bespoke Competition Law policy, created by an international law firm. Members are provided with a set of rules governing any potentially anti-competitive behaviour, as well as training and guidance materials for the quorum chairs.

OUR ORGANISATION

For ten years Quorum 15 has been bringing together senior executives from across the buy-side and sell-side to build consensus and help drive change in global financial markets. Through quarterly meetings around the world, Quorum 15 fosters dialogue, builds mutual understanding and identifies common opportunities and challenges. We work with and support regulators and industry associations in the promotion of fair, efficient and well-functioning financial markets.

POSITIONING

Quorum 15 is independent and self-financed. 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 any discussion that could be considered in any way to be anti-competitive.

ADVISORY BOARD

To ensure the agendas only focus on what is most important to its members, an advisory board comprised of buy and sell-side members has been established in each location. In the run-up to each quorum, three or four key topics are identified, put to the vote and from there the primary and secondary topics are determined along with any guest speakers.

Q15 Digital

In its 10th anniversary year, Quorum 15 is expanding its geographic coverage, and through the launch of the Q15 Digital Service, making access available to a wider community of buy and sell-side members. The move comes in response to heightened interest from buy and sell-side firms around the world in markets not currently covered by the physical quorums or otherwise unable to participate in those meetings.
