FX Week is delighted to announce that the 3rd annual FX Invest West Coast conference will be taking place in San Francisco on September 17, 2013!

See what delegates said about the last year's conference:

"The depth of content and the calibre of speakers far exceeded my expectations. To this day, it still amazes me the degree to which FX as a stand-alone asset class is over looked and underappreciated."


"I love this conference; FX embodies pretty much all the macro factors influencing the global capital markets. The speakers are always good and there's lots of time and opportunity for interaction "

BNY Mellon Investment Management

"Very strong presenters (stronger than many other conferences I've seen)!"
First Quadrant, L.P.

"The FX Invest West Coast conference had a very diverse and accomplished set of presenters with new insights into FX, and the size of the conference was highly conducive to networking."

FX Invest West Coast takes place only once a year and as part of the FX community, you cannot afford to miss the 2013 event!
