The 2015 FUSE Forum In Pictures

Reported by Fabrice Charles

Yesterday Neil Bathon and his crew gathered more than 160 fundsters for a networking and thought leadership event in Beantown. Bathon's FUSE Research Network held its second annual FUSE Forum at the Harvard Club of Boston. Top-level fundsters spoke and listened, and while speakers' comments were off-the-record, MFWire got the go-ahead to give you a look at what went down.

Bathon himself humbly suggested to attendees that the event "might be the most excellent conference ever, actually."

The stage is set.
The crowd is waiting.
