Yes, it’s this week. The A-Team Data Management Summit is coming to town (if you happen to be in London) this coming Thursday, October 1.
I’m particularly excited by this event as we’ve managed to attract our strongest group of speakers and panellists to date. And, as you might expect, this lineup of senior bank and fund manager data management practitioners is drawing quite a crowd.
Registrations from financial institutions of all kinds are very strong, and this brings us another step toward our aim of establishing DMS as THE meeting place for London’s financial data management community.
I won’t dwell on the agenda here, since you can check it out for yourself easily enough. There’s still time to register, if you’d like to attend, (though you’re out of luck if you wanted to exhibit: Sold out!). But aside from the designated keynote and panel topics we’ll be discussing, I’m hoping to gather some indication from attendees (and indeed our delightful DMR readers) on the balance between regulatory issues and market responses/solutions.
Certainly, such is the interest in regulation, the case could be made for a version of this event with a purely regulatory focus, leaving issues around technology to a separate event. As some of you know, I’m hosting an informal dinner in New York next week to discuss these and other conundrums that arise from the continued to success of the DMS franchise. High-class problem, as I like to say to the kids.
You may also be aware that A-Team is running a drinks reception for winners of our DMR Awards in London on November 19. Voting has just opened. If you work for a financial institution, go here and vote early (but not often).
See you all soon, either here or there!
