Membership / Benefits

Free attendance to IAQF Evening Forums. The IAQF hosts a spring and fall series of forums on timely and relevant topics in the field of quantitative finance and the policy issues that are just around the corner. Our events are designed to provide a high-level of frank discussion and an opportunity to network with other individuals involved in the field. For the few forums for which we do charge, IAQF Members receive a discounted ticket price. IAQF Members also receive preferential seating at popular events for which there is a limited capacity.

Discounts to IAQF Endorsed Conferences. As part of our educational mission, we endorse conferences that we believe are of value to our membership. Conference fees can be exorbitant and the 20% discount that our members usually receive often saves them a dollar amount exceeding the price of their IAQF membership.

Invitations to the Financial Engineer of the Year Award Dinner. Each of these high profile events offer a unique opportunity to meet the individuals making significant contributions to the field.
