Where the leaders of the European hedge fund sector connect, share insights and debate the direction of the industry.

We together C-Level executives from Europe’s leading firms for a day and a half of precise, actionable and insightful content. The agenda is shaped by a thorough research process, to ensure that the event has its finger on the industry pulse.

After the past 12 months, the industry has gone through a number of exceptional events, from Covid-19 to the GameStop mania fulled by Reddit, a new US President and the implementation of Brexit.

Since 2010, the HFM European Operational Leaders’ Summit has become the key annual meeting for Europeans COOs to debate, discuss and connect, with this year’s event set to welcome more than 200 delegates from over 175 firms.

After moving to a virtual format for the 2020 edition, we are excited to announce that the 2021 event will be taking place in-person at The Grove, Hertfordshire. We are working hard with The Grove Venue Team to ensure the event is safe for all attendees and that you feel comfortable joining us.
