The WIF event begins the third annual Markets Media Week that begins Tuesday, November 7 through the 9th in New York City.

Markets Media Week kicks off with the Markets Choice Awards: Women in Finance Luncheon, where we will recognize some of the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across buy-side and sell-side trading desks, institutional investors, hedge funds, exchanges and technology providers.

Subsequent events will include our second annual Traders Magazine Equity Market Structure Town Hall Forum, featuring Roundtable Discussions themed around the most pressing topics in equity trading and market structure; our inaugural Fixed Income Trading Town Hall Forum, which will explore all matters pertaining to liquidity in that asset class; and our inaugural Foreign Exchange Trading Town Hall Forum, which will cover the intersection of technology, regulation and market structure in the most global asset class.

Mark your calendars and stay tuned for further details!
