Bürgenstock 2015

The Swiss Futures and Options Association (‘SFOA’) once again hosted its international forum for commodities, derivatives and emerging markets in Geneva on September 22 – 24, 2015. Now in its fourth decade, this Bürgenstock Meeting continued our tradition of attracting high-level speakers from across the globe for high-level debate and discussion.

The world is changing fast. So is Bürgenstock. This year was our 36th year and we are adapting to face the reality of new markets, new opportunities. We made some exciting changes to our flagship event.

  • Delegates from across the planet from international exchanges, derivatives trading firms, commodities traders, support and professional services firms
  • Amazing content from world-class speakers. We attracted some of the most senior C-suite delegates from across the planet who are interested in real cutting-edge information
  • We are in a money business. This year we created new networking opportunities at the event and looked to bring in a much stronger commercial element; so delegates could meet traders, the buy-side, the sell-side and indeed everyone across the world of derivatives
  • This year there was a trade exhibition for delegates to look at new products and innovative services from global providers
  • We started out and have continued to serve the international commodities community.

We are not politically aligned to any ideology and we are uniquely placed in a neutral country. Bürgenstock isn’t there to ‘sell’ the market philosophy of any single country or group of countries. As such we are independent promoters of derivative and commodities markets.
