INQUIRE maintains close relations with the following organisations, which have similar aims but with different geographical and other emphases.

Inquire Europe

  • caters primarily to the needs of investment practitioners in Europe rather than the UK, but otherwise has very similar aims
  • alternates with INQUIRE in holding a 2-day joint residential seminar each spring
  • offers up to 5 seats free of charge to delegates from INQUIRE at its own 2-day residential autumn seminar
  • may send up to 5 of its own delegates free of charge to each INQUIRE seminar

The Q-Group

  • caters primarily to the needs of investment practitioners in North America rather than the UK, but otherwise has very similar aims
  • holds two residential conferences each year at which it offers seats to delegates from INQUIRE on payment of a guest fee
  • on a similar basis may send delegates to each INQUIRE seminar

The Chicago Quantitative Alliance (CQA)

  • also caters primarily to the needs of investment practitioners in North America, but unlike the Q-Group has individual rather than corporate membership and focuses on seminars rather than research as such.
  • holds four conferences and other events each year in North America and, through its Asian chapter CQAsia, one in Hong Kong
  • offers up to 5 seats free at each event free of charge to delegates from INQUIRE
  • may send up to 5 of its own delegates to each INQUIRE seminar

The Society of Quantitative Analysts (SQA)

  • is similar to CQA but is based in New York and has a slightly different membership set-up
  • holds monthly evening meetings and twice-yearly conferences
  • at which (subject to final agreement with SQA) it is hoped it will offer seats to delegates from INQUIRE on payment of a guest fee, and on a similar basis may send delegates to each INQUIRE seminar

In addition:

The CFA Institute

  • is a member of INQUIRE
  • provides guidance to INQUIRE through Nitin Mehta, managing director (EMEA), who sits on our Advisory Panel
  • provides CPD certification for all our seminars
