The renewed success the SFOA International Meeting has been encountering over the past 32 years show that despite the difficult market situation it is important to meet, discuss and exchange views and ideas and also to network. The 33rd conference will take place from September 5 to 7, 2012, again at the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa, in Interlaken, Switzerland.
As in the past the conference will be preceded in the Wednesday morning by the traditional international regulator's meeting – on special invitation and for regulators only – as well as the Emerging Markets Forum and the Structured Products Forum, both being open to interested parties on request to SFOA (separate registration is required). Detailed information on these parallel pre-conference sessions is available in the Parallel activities chapter. The official opening of the 33rd meeting will take place at 16:00 and be followed on Thursday and Friday by highly interesting discussions and debates on a broad range of timely topics such as ‘Ethics, Governance, Sustainability’, Economists Panel’, ‘Legislators’ and Regulators’ recent hard work’, ‘View from the Real Economy’, ‘Energy’, ‘MF Global – can similar surprises now be prevented?’, ‘Mandatory Clearing for OTC Products’ as well as a debate on 'Financial Transaction Taxes'. Closing remarks will be addressed on Friday afternoon, allowing participants to go back home before the week-end, or enjoy the surrounding breathtaking alpine scenery.
While business will constitute the core of the event, numerous social activities will offer unique networking opportunities as in the past.
