As the summer season comes to an end and holiday makers return to their desks, here at Data Management Review we are working on an exciting programme of activities that we would like to invite you to take part in.
We start the autumn season with a number of topical webinars covering issues including client lifecycle management, data quality, data lineage, sanctions data monitoring, entity data quality, beneficial ownership data, open source symbology and data governance.
There’s also a focus, no surprises here, on regulation, with webinars dedicated to how effectively firms are meeting the data requirements of Solvency II, particularly the tricky issue of look through, and how to meet the myriad data management challenges of Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II). We’ll also look into the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), an overhaul of existing data privacy rules that will have an impact across capital markets and could require significant changes to data management processes ahead of compliance in May 2018.
On the subject of regulation, we are close to publishing the fourth edition of our Regulatory Data Handbook, a top seller for A-Team and a highly prized possession in our data management community. The handbook updates the details of more than 20 regulations and adds another handful that are coming our way. As well as a full description of each regulation, the handbook includes ‘at a glance’ summaries, timelines, key diary dates and links to useful background information.
The Regulatory Data Handbook will be available to download from the Data Management Review website in October, and we’ll also have hard copies at our events, so you can pick one up at one of our autumn Data Management Summits. If you are a vendor with solutions in the regulatory space, sponsorship opportunities are available, so do get in touch.
Speaking of our Data Management Summits (DMS), they are shaping up really nicely with some great topics and speakers.
Our next London DMS is on 6 October at Hilton Tower Bridge. As well as keynotes and panel discussions, the London event will include both sell-side and buy-side streams dedicated to the data management issues that keep you awake at night. There will also be roundtable discussions where you can share experience and opinions on topics from the role of the chief data officer to bitcoin and blockchain. Also new at London DMS are technology showcase sessions that will provide short demos of products that could help solve your data management dilemmas.
We’re also working on the agenda for our next DMS in New York City, which will be on 17 November at Convene in the financial district. Topics range from the data management response to ongoing regulation to data governance, KYC, client onboarding, and all the pain points in between. DMS NYC also includes streams dedicated to both the sell-side and buy-side.
Topping it all are the A-Team Data Management Review Awards, which are now in their fourth year and an established event in the data management community. Voting for your best vendors will open soon, so watch this space, and we’ll let you know the results on the day of our awards ceremony in London on 11 November.
So, lots going on, plenty to take part in and we look forward to meeting you soon at one of our autumn events.
