International COO Community
Our focus is the bridge between strategy and execution, and specifically supporting the COO by providing a haven within a Chatham House Rule environment for the COO community to work together to address market-wide, non-proprietary challenges. We help our members navigate the complex challenges of today, to work together to identify efficiencies and solutions, moving collective thought into action through the exchange of ideas, experiences, and structured debate.
What we do is complimentary but different to industry bodies. We are not a lobbying entity, but a global corporate membership committed to the advancement of the COO. Industry bodies’ aims are broadly to act as a bridge between market participants and policy makers, ours is to act as the bridge between COOs, supporting them in making the financial sector a better place for all.
