About The Analyst Forum

Our Bank Analyst Forum brings some of the leading sell side banking analysts from top research and brokerage firms together to share macro-economic trends specific to CEOs, CFOs and chairmen of financial companies.  Instead of focusing on specific stocks, we will share board-specific information through our conferences with special panel discussions that involve bank analysts; digitally, through guest columns, executive briefings and white papers; and finally, via a special section in each quarterly issue of Bank Director magazine.
