Institutional Equity Sales, DMA and Algos, TCA and Best Execution Analysis, Account Management

As a sell-side broker, since inception in 2010, I have found the Alpha Trader Forum (ATF) sessions an invaluable way to discuss current regulatory changes on an informal basis with industry peers and also the perfect way to meet up with Heads of Buy side trading desks. All thanks to team K&KGC!

Andy Mahoney

Director - Business Development, FlexTrade UK Ltd

With the Alpha Trader Forums, K&KGC have built a terrific community of senior buy-side participants who all enthusiastically get involved in highly relevant discussions of matters that are important to them. Sponsoring these events gives us, as technology vendors, phenomenal insights into buy-side issues and thinking, as well as providing us a sounding board for our ideas together with an opportunity to listen and learn. And, although these discussions are provided for, and driven by, the buy-side, we find our participation can help us to identify new business opportunities.


Head of Pan-Asian Sales, Flextrade Systems Pte Limited

As a ‘broker-neutral’ vendor and sponsor, The Asia Buyside Forum (ABF), provides us with the opportunity to absorb and understand the ever-changing issues faced by senior Buy-Side Trading executives. The format, created by Kristian and Anita, allows participants to drill down into the issues of today and discuss the challenges of tomorrow. We pride ourselves on listening to our existing clients, as well as prospects, and responding to their needs. Unlike some larger networking events, ABF provides us with intimate access to industry leaders. This, in turn, helps us shape and define our strategic road-map for the future. We look forward to continuing our relationship with K&K Global Consulting.

“K&KGC’s Foreign Exchange Alpha Trader Forum (ATF) attracts influential, high profile, key decision making subject matter experts and therefore a highly valuable event. Managers really enjoy peer to peer discussions and the round table format is particularly useful to convey your message to an engaged and willing audience, enabling very focused and efficient discussions”

Kyle White

“The Alpha Trader Forums provide an excellent platform for the buy-side trading community to come together with solution providers and discuss ways to improve the functioning of the fixed income markets.  In a time of such rapid change, forums such as this offer a constructive outlet for challenging convention and putting thought into action”

Tony Booth

Head of Sales EMEA, Liquidnet Europe

“The Alpha Trader Forum (ATF) by K&K Global Consulting (K&KGC) provides the perfect environment in which the European buy-side community can share intelligence and discuss industry issues. Anita moderates debate in an impartial and professional way,  conducting surveys and soliciting expert input. With the ATF the buy-side can channel a collective voice to address the challenges they face”

Tim Wildenberg

CEO, Neonet Securities

“Anita and the team at K&KGC put together a well thought out series of private and exclusive forums, covering all of the relevant topics.  Anita’s personal engagement with sponsors and the buy side community helps differentiate her events from many of the mass produced and sterile alternatives that proliferate in our market.  Anita listens to her sponsors and the buy side community and works hard to keep her conferences interesting and worthwhile.  As a sponsor I can be sure of her commitment and hard work to make my sponsorship achieve the desired outcome”
