About Truffle

Truffle is an annual discussion at the intersection between the financial markets and politics of critical issues facing the world today.

A Thought Leadership event where COMPLEX TOPICS and RESPECTFUL DISCUSSION are the foundation behind each program.

Our guests include, but are not limited to: institutional investors, treasury, pension funds, family offices and anyone that wants to be challenged to think “outside the box”.

Conference Principles

  • Quality, not quantity
  • Respectful discussion – Everyone one has something to contribute
  • Awareness of the environment and responsible ownership
  • Social media is great but nothing replaces face-to-face
  • Engagement, not business card collecting
  • Arrogance has no place here
  • Supporting the cultural arts and historical locations with our event
  • Diversity
