Talking Reference Data with Andrew Delaney: If Only…

Subscribe to our newsletter

I frequently find myself in meetings, on calls, at conferences, listening to people talk about the data and data management impact of regulation. I’ve heard it said many times, by suppliers mostly, that regulation is our friend. And it’s probably fair to say that without regulation, our industry would not be moving at quite the pace it is.

And yet it occurs to me that while we all talk a lot about regulation, we don’t talk much about what any given directive or legislation means. We know what it’s about, and we know why it’s being instituted. But we often don’t know truly how it will impact the way data is managed.

If only there were a guide to the impact of specific regulations on data within financial institutions…

If only…

You may be relieved to learn that we are in the process of pulling together the A-Team Regulatory Data Handbook, which we’ll be distributing out our Data Management Summit on May 13 in New York. The idea is to provide an at-a-glance guide to those regulations globally that we expect to have the most significant impact on financial institutions data operations.

We’ll kick off this spring with nine or 10 regulations, and then do an update and add a few more in time to distribute the book at our autumn events in London (October 8) and New York (November 4). You’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that there are sponsorship and advertising opportunities (get in touch with Jo Webb if you are interested: jo@a-teamgroup.com).

So far, we plan to cover the following regulations in the first iteration:

AIFMD
Basel II
Basel III
Dodd Frank
EMIR
Fatca
KYC (yes, we know it’s not a regulation per se)
MiFID II
Solvency II

We think this is a good start, and we’re keen to hear from you on any others we should be covering in Version 2. For each, we’ll provide a quick overview of the whys and wherefores of the regulation, what it means in terms of data coverage and reporting requirements, important dates and deadlines, and key links to more detailed information.

No data management executive should be without a copy.

As I say, we’re pulling this together now. It will be ready for May 13. And as ever, your feedback is gratefully received.
