About the club

The Broker Club was created to establish a community specifically for Brokers operating within Capital Markets.  The purpose is to build a network and community as well as solve challenges by sharing specific and topical information on subjects such as regulation, infrastructure, technology and innovation. 

Why did we create The Broker Club?

It seemed to us that financial institutions and companies have a wealth of information, publications associations and events specifically for them. With one group as an exception… Brokers.

Currently…

No one helps Brokers get new clients.

No one tells brokers how they can cut costs and be more efficient.

If Brokers want to attend conferences they have to pay, whereas often they are free to the Buy-Side.

No one gives Brokers information about what latest technology is available, for example what products exist that solve regulatory requirements.

No one tells Brokers what alternatives are available to traditional vendors. There are alternatives available often at a cost far cheaper than the traditional suppliers and less than employing more staff.

No one gives Brokers a specific reference library covering Trading, Regulation/Risk/Compliance, Operations and Technology with articles, white papers and others – accessible by subject and keyword search.

No one gives Brokers a community and forum where they can ask each other questions, even anonymously to validate what they are considering.

No one arranges events, meetings and social gatherings specifically for Brokers.

We decided to put this right -Exclusive Membership to The Broker club gives you all of this and more.

Our Meetings and Events will be centred around requested subjects and hosted by The Broker Club.
