The return of our APAC network reception in Sydney

On 4th December, BAML and Quorum 15 will be hosting a combined quorum and network reception for our APAC.


Our usual breakfast quorums will switch to “after close” and will be followed by a network reception and panel debate.  We would like to thank BAML for once more lending us their 34th floor Governor Phillip Tower Sydney Headquarters with its stunning harbour views for what has become a traditional Sydney December event.


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.


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.


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.
