Event | Data as Currency

Keynote Speaker
Joshua Beaton

Head of Americas Trade and Transaction Reporting, Morgan Stanley

19th June 2018, Tuesday

8:30am - 10:30am

The Bryant Park Hotel | 40 W. 40th Street, NY, NY 10018

Post-financial crisis, global financial institutions have been collecting and reporting data all along the trade life cycle.  The data has been used for compliance, regulatory reporting and risk measurements (MIFIDII, CAT, FRTB).  These institutions collect and house data across asset classes, various platforms and in a range of data environments all in the effort to better monitor their data.  What type of data could be leveraged to grow the businesses and understand how to better price products and services for the customer base?  For risk managers, how can these data points be used to better manage and mitigate risk?

In this session, Citihub Consulting will look at use cases for data as currency.  Where can the data be repurposed and used to drive opportunity and not merely report on activity?  What kind of new decisions about where the business is heading can be made once we better analyze the information collected? What does “Big Data” as a service look like (BDaaS)?

Design Challenges:

How do you design the governance differently with growth in mind?  Many firms need to create a schema with the end in mind as well as a Quality Assurance program to ensure that the data meets the regulatory requirements.  How do we effectively design and manage those large-scale programs from end to end?

Security Challenges:

Data privacy and security is an ongoing concern for firms today. The safe keeping of that data depends on the security framework that organizations set up and maintain.  What are the policy and design drivers around security? What is the governance in place? Are you using Cloud, and what is your security around your cloud provider?

Held under the Chatham House Rule, this will be your opportunity to learn and share experiences with your peers from leading financial services firms.
