ISITC Europe, the industry group dedicated to improving the operational efficiency of the capital markets industry, today announced the content of its second quarterly conference of 2012. The event will be held on Thursday the 21st of June at Brown Brothers Harriman’s London City office and will be titled, ‘Drilling Down on Derivatives’, in light of the evolving regulation around the asset class.
The event is set to provide both new and more established members with the latest information and debate between some of the industry’s most prominent thought leaders. Panel members will include Stephen Bruel, Head of Derivatives Product at BBH, who is flying in from New York especially for the occasion, and he will be joined by Anthony Kirby (Ernst and Young), Tony Freeman (Omgeo), John Wilson and Ed Goudstone (Linedata).
Graeme Austin, chief executive of ISITC Europe, who will be updating conference attendees on the latest news from the trade association, commenting on the quarterly agenda, said: “Derivatives seemed like a natural focus for the upcoming quarterly. With regulation altering the market landscape, we knew we wanted to give our members an informative and thought provoking session from participants who can cut through the complexity and help make sense of the developments around derivatives. We also get the chance to update the community on the work we have been doing since our last gathering.”
ISITC Europe speaks for the whole industry, including broker/dealers, custodians, investment managers as well as vendors and utilities. Its mission is to develop standards and market practices that will enhance efficiency across the transaction life cycle.
