STANY’s 77th Annual Conference & Dinner- April 25, 2013

"Our Financial Markets- Where Shall The Pendulum Swing?"

Bond Game to Benefit the DeGregorio Family Foundation

2013 promises to be one of the major inflection points for the trading community’s competitive and regulatory landscape. It is increasingly important to retain your competitive edge.

On April 25, 2013 STANY will once again be the meeting place for the securities industry to discuss market developments, innovations and regulations. More than 250 senior trading executives are expected to attend STANY’s 77th Annual Trading and Market Structure Conference- an additional 250 are expected to join us for STANY’s Dinner immediately following the conference.

Join us to hear thought leaders discuss what they are doing to differentiate their products while addressing the litany of upcoming regulatory protocols that include: tick size, kill switches, maker/taker, CAT, prop trading, Dodd-Frank, and much more.

Meet and network with key participants in the equities, derivatives, options and bond industry: trading houses, market makers, hedge funds, banks, brokers, compliance professionals, regulators, exchanges, and technology providers. By attending, you will have the opportunity to focus on the real concerns surrounding looming regulation, proposed market restructuring, and competition in today’s and tomorrow’s markets.

The DeGregorio Family Foundation for Stomach and Esophageal Cancer



Founded in 2006 after a tenth member of the DeGregorio family succumbed to stomach cancer and was found to have a rare gene that causes the disease (and other cancers), the DFF’s purpose is to monetarily support research and education and to encourage collaboration amongst researchers in order to facilitate earlier diagnosis and novel treatment therapies for stomach and esophageal cancer.


Today, stomach and esophageal cancers are treated as orphan diseases despite their prevalence and deadliness. Together, more than 1.3 million people will be diagnosed with an upper GI malignancy annually. These are aggressive cancers with high mortality rates. Despite aggressive treatments like the removal of the stomach or esophagus, chemotherapy and radiation, five year survival rates remain dismal at around 15%. To make matters worse, there are no high profile advocacy groups that garner interest in these diseases in the United States. This has resulted in little funding to support research on these deadly cancers, which has meant minimal progress being made in their prevention or improvement in survival once diagnosed. The scope and depth of the current research to improve our understanding of the biology and etiology of stomach and esophageal related malignancies does not match the enormous global impact of these diseases. The field is in desperate need of, and is ripe for, medical advancement.

Buy-Side rate tickets available for STANY Members ($50.00) and Non-Members ($225). Buy-side traders, please contact Emily Escott at [email protected] for eligibility and to purchase special rate tickets.
