Talking Reference Data With Andrew Delaney: Being There

Subscribe to our newsletter

In the month or so since our Data Management Summit in London, we’ve been quietly developing the programme for its sister conference in New York on May 13. Due to circumstances arguably beyond my control (we’re expecting twins – yes, twins – in May), I won’t be making the trip, instead leaving my usual MCing duties in the capable hands of our very own Sarah Underwood. But the agenda is shaping up nicely for what is, in essence, our first DMS trip to the Big Apple.

Co-located, as it were, with our Intelligent Trading Summit, DMS kicks off in earnest, after a shared opening architecture session, with a keynote from Philippe Chambadal, CEO of Smartstream, who’ll be making the case that Reference Data Utilities – [are] the Only Way Forward.

There then follows a series of panel sessions discussing such themes as: risk and regulation as drivers; toward a utility model for reference data management; managing entity data with the LEI; data management for portfolio pricing and performance measurement; and the role of CDO.

I’m thrilled that we’ll be joined with some true movers and shakers from the practitioner world, among them friends old and new. They include: Thomas K. Dunlap, Global Head of Reference Data Operations at Goldman Sachs; Thomas Mavroudis, CDO, HSBC Americas; Jennifer Ippoliti, CDO, Raymond James Financial; and Chris Vickery, COO/Americas, Nomura.

As ever, great thanks is due to our sponsors: Euroclear, Smartstream, Bloomberg, Bloomberg Polarlake, Goldensource, IBM, Interactive Data, S&P Capital IQ, Alacra and Xenomorph.

We still have some time, so if you’re keen to take part, get in touch with me or Jo Webb. I won’t see you there on the day, but I’ll be thinking of you all (unless I’m otherwise occupied…).
