Each year, the Society hosts an Annual Dinner, which is our most prestigious event of the year and routinely sells out. It has become the “who’s who” event for the Washington, DC financial investment industry. Over 400 investment professionals attend, representing leading asset managers and advisors, corporations, institutional investors, regulatory agencies, and international financial institutions in the Washington, DC metro area.
