Collaboration in Financial Services Conference – Sep 29

I hope to attend this upcoming NYC conference on “Collaboration in Financial Services Conference” on September 29th.

The conference will address the increasing importance of collaboration and collaboration technologies in institutional financial services, and help individual firms and the entire industry to address the challenges and opportunities of this emerging space.

It will bring together industry leaders to examine the underlying drivers of change including transparency, execution commoditization, and shifts in buy-side/ sell-side information flows in specific market segments, including equities, fixed income, M&A, and syndication. The conference will bring together industry leaders to examine the underlying drivers of change and the action that should be taken on key issues including:

+ The potential and implications of collaborative technologies
+ Effective compliance for collaboration technologies
+ Collaboration in deal-making: M&A, due diligence, private equity etc.
+ The shift from email to collaborative spaces
+ Online syndication
+ The future of research workflow and distribution
+ Instant messaging interoperability and implementation
+ Creating an industry roadmap for collaboration
