DTCC Joining Panel Discussions at FIMA Europe BannerMatthew Stauffer, CEO of Clarient Global LLC and Mark Davies, General Manager, Avox, will join other senior executives on panels at the Financial Information Management Europe Conference (FIMA), (FIMA), November 10-11 in London.

FIMA Europe will attract more than 200 chief data officers and senior-level data professionals from leading global banks and asset management firms. They will discuss the issues and challenges related to the volume of new regulations. Also on tap will be how they can position their departments as profit centers.

The conference expects a line-up of 70 speakers who will focus these leading edge topics:

  • Data standardization
  • Data transparency
  • Quality of data in risk management and transaction support
  • Regulation

Stauffer will be a panelist on the session, To What Extent Can You Leverage and Re-Use Data to Implement an Efficient Client Onboarding Process as a Competitive Differentiator? With increased global regulations surrounding client onboarding, firms are faced with how to most efficiently manage legal entity data across their business. The panel will discuss how a utility platform can help to streamline and standardize the onboarding process, effectively reducing operational risk and cost. Joining Stauffer on the panel will be Simon Feddo, Director, Group Data Services, UBS, Michael Horsnell, Head of KYC and Client Data, Citi and Claire Sprawson, Head of Client Management, RBS.

“This is a great opportunity to come together with industry professionals to discuss the current complex onboarding process and highlight the value a utility-based solution, like Clarient, can provide,” Stauffer said.

The Clarient Entity Hub is a data and document utility created to allow counterparties to standardize the collection, maintenance and distribution of entity data and documentation required for client onboarding. It also enables clients to use their data submissions as a platform for the information required throughout the client lifecycle. This applies to rules such as Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), Dodd-Frank, and EMIR regulations.

Panel on Data Strategies

Davies will join the panel, Exceeding the Expectations of Your Internal Customers: What Strategies Should the CDO or Data Leader Put in Place to Meet Their Needs?. While financial services firms understand the need to better manage their data in the face of increasing regulatory requirements, many are unable to put effective data practices into place. The panel will cover strategies and best practices to help internal customers solve the challenges of implementing effective data strategies.

Davies will be joined by Graham Smith, CDO, RBS, Tarun Chudasama, Head of Information Management, Investec Asset Management, Sean Howell, Vice President, Global Data Services, Fidelity Investments.

Avox matches, enriches and maintains legal entity reference data for its clients, delivering corporate hierarchies, registered address information, industry sector codes and company identifiers. This approach ensures that clients can rely on the most accurate and timely data available to facilitate decision making and regulatory reporting.
