The Fixed Income Conference is now in its 11th year and in 2015 we are heading to France and the wonderful, exciting, cosmopolitan and my favourite city Paris. The pre-conference workshop day now boasts four options, and as usual on Thursday evening all delegates will be invited to our traditional gala dinner.

Our three streamed main conference format remains a firm favourite as the longer sessions allow presenters to develop their quants ideas and present detailed analysis. Delegates can enjoy longer breaks in our informal environment, which is ideal for networking opportunities.

Neil Fowler,
Managing Director, WBS Training
