What does IPUG membership give me?
Corporate Membership entitles each member firm to nominate a defined number of delegates for participation in IPUG activities, group meetings and access to shared knowledge and information.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
IPUG runs a number of topical SIGs throughout the year, e.g. Bloomberg, FactSet, FTSE, & Markit. Most meeting agendas include an open forum in which members may discuss issues relevant to that particular group and it is common for the vendor to be invited to present to, and be quizzed by, the attendees. Meetings can also be convened at the demand of the members focused on a particular subject or vendor.
Our website provides Members’ only access to the unique "Ask IPUG" Forum. Members are able to pose questions to the whole membership and obtain answers from those best able to respond. Meeting notes, presentation materials and full industry news articles are also stored in the ‘Members only’ section of the website.
