Talking Reference Data with Andrew Delaney: Three-Letter Acronym (TLA) Syndrome

Next week, as you may know, I’ll be heading to NYC and not for R&R. Our newest Brit on the Street (BOS) – Caroline Statman – and I will be doing the proverbial rounds of the reference data world to see what’s what and what will be what come 2013. It’s going to be a busy time.

We have some 15 meetings lined up, and for those of you we didn’t manage to get in the diary for this time, please rest assured that you are invited to our Brits on the Street (Lite – no Harris) party on Tuesday October 9, at Pound & Pence on Liberty Street at Nassau, Downtown. We’ll be there from 5.30ish. we have a room, so ask for us if you can’t find us.

While I get to NYC a few times a year, this is the first time for some time that I’ve put some real effort into going to see old friends. Usually, I’m there for Sifma, our own Low-Latency or Data Management Summit (LLS/DMS), or some other industry event: the lazy way of keeping in touch.

This time has been different, and I’ve been overwhelmed by the level of reaction from my late-night Facebooking and Linked-Ining, for this seems to be the best way of connecting directly to people you know these days, as opposed to people you don’t know. In fact, our Reference Data Review Facebook page is starting to generate some interest in our own home page.

Who knew?

Anyway, this week has been all about getting ready for NYC and, of course, our webinar today (Wednesday October 3) on the LEI, yet another TLA. If you haven’t already signed up, assuming you have some interest in LEI – and frankly who doesn’t these days? – then do so now. We currently have around 500 people registered for this webinar, which makes it the hottest topic we’ve handled at least for a while.

I hope you can join us, and pitch in with some hard-hitting questions. Joining me in the discussion will be Thomson Reuters’ Tim Lind, DTCC’s Mark Davies and Bloomberg’s Peter Warms. In prep, it’s been clear to me that these guys know what they’re talking about. LEI isn’t just another TLA. And if you need some background on what it’s all about – and believe me, if you need some, you need this –
