Cutter's member community is our industry's premier online forum for collaboration with peer firms. When the online discussion rises to a level that requires a conversation, we'll convene a Community Conversation. During this Community Conversation, Cutter Aladdin Peer Networking Group members will discuss their experiences and business use cases for Aladdin's Explore and Accounting modules to systematically generate performance, AUM, exposures, characteristics, and performance attribution.
