What’s in the Name QWAFAFEW?

Originally for mainly quantitatively oriented investment professionals, the name QWAFAFEW (pronounced “quaff-a-few”) is a double entendre. The acronym is derived from Quantitative Work Alliance for Applied Finance Education and Wisdom.

QWAFAFEW Today

The QWAFAFEW NY Chapter now hosts monthly forums on a wide range of investment topics from fundamental and quantitative strategies to technology to regulation – but we have maintained the informal atmosphere and the opportunity to discuss issues and relax over drinks with your peers. The forum also serves as a conduit for networking. 

Atmosphere: Casual and informal.
Officers: Officers are elected by the general membership. The Steering Committee guides this process.

Financial Issues: QWAFAFEW is a not-for-profit club. Annual Dues are collected from members in addition to admission fees in order to cover meeting costs. Membership is on an individual, not a corporate basis. Presenters, members, and nonmember attendees are presumed to represent themselves, not their organization. Receipts are provided once per month. Members of other chapters pay membership rates to attend New York meetings.
Meeting Frequency: Generally, 12 times per year, and at least once per month. Venues rotate with time of year, target audience, and sponsorship opportunities.
