Talking Reference Data with Andrew Delaney – Back in N.Y.C.

Subscribe to our newsletter

On a conference call the other day chatting about – what else? – LEI, a friend remarked on how ridiculously busy he was. Jetting about the place, flying in to here and there, meeting with clients, risking life and limb for the good of the company.

“It’s that time of the year,” he said. “Budget time. Exciting.”

Yes indeed. Except, he added: “Excitingly flat.”

Maybe you’re finding yourself in the same boat. Running around like a blue-arsed fly just to stand still. It happens to the best of us, and it’s certainly felt that way for quite some time.

But here at Reference Data Towers we are slightly more optimistic. As you know, we’ve spent the summer entranced by developments in LEI. The result will be our special report on the topic – currently in production – and a webinar on October 3 featuring experts from DTCC, Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters. If you haven’t registered to join us, you can do so here. It promises to be an interesting session.

We have a number of reference data-related research projects under way, of which you’ll hear more later, ranging from corporate actions automation to enterprise architectures and on. And of course we too are doing the obligatory planning rounds.

To wit, I’ll be Back in New York City the week of October 8 to catch up with old friends and to see what’s what for 2013. Most importantly, though, I’ll be introducing the latest addition to the A-Team clan – Caroline Statman – a colleague from our (short-lived) Risk Waters days, who’ll be our bizdev point person in the Big Apple, focused on – you guessed it – reference data and risk technology.

To make things easy for our busy New York friends, Caroline and I will be hosting what Pete Harris calls Brits on the Street Lite (he said it, not me), which means Brits on the Street without Pete (as he’ll be working away in balmy Austin, Texas). This Brits Lite will happen on Tuesday October 9 at the Pound & Pence on Liberty Street. Details here.

If you’re reading this, you’re invited (although please DM me one way or another so I can make sure the room is big enough). Similarly, if you’d like a more formal chat, get in touch soonest.

It’s gonna be a busy week and I can’t wait.
