Upcoming Webinar: Data Standards – progress and case studies

10 November 2020

Date: 10 November 2020
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET

Global data standards and identifiers are essential to business growth, market stability and cost reduction – but they can be challenging to implement, while a lack of consistency across jurisdictions has presented obstacles to global take-up.

However, with regulators starting to sit up and take note, the issue of data standards is coming increasingly to the fore. The FICC Markets Standards Board (FMSB) in its latest Spotlight Review warned that if markets are to remain stable and trusted, fair and effective, then the rapid growth of new technology and of data science must be balanced with more effective governance and control – notably through the widespread use of data standards.

Following on from A-Team Group’s in-depth discussion earlier this year on ‘Data Standards and Identifiers: Where are the helping and what more can be done?’ this webinar brings you the latest updates on progress: including a review of current industry developments around data standards and identifiers including the LEI, UPI, ISINs, Cusips and more, and how they have helped firms meet regulatory requirements thus far.

It explores the challenge in adopting these standards, the most urgent pressures facing firms in terms of adoption, and how the industry can further engage in the standard-setting process.

Presenting a range of detailed and specific use cases defining practical illustrations of adoption and execution, the webinar is a must for anyone with an interest in the security, accuracy, timeliness and integrity of data for the smooth running of the financial markets.

Listen to this webinar to find more about:

  • Industry progress on data standards and identifiers such as the LEI, UPI, ISINs, Cusips
  • Case studies on how standards are being used
  • Challenges to adoption and barriers to implementation
  • The role of standards in a digital and data driven world
