0930(BST): Data, Digitalisation & the Common Domain Model

 

Presentation by:

  • Leo Labeis, Co-Founder and CEO, ReGnosys


ISLA have highlighted common data representations as a priority whilst firms continue to grapple with SFTR.

 
We may be entering a difficult period for profitability. Will the industry have the resources to continue the drive towards a digitalised future, or are the potential efficiencies more of a necessity than ever?  What are the latest developments for documentation? What are the next steps in post-trade efficiency?

1400(BST): ESG & Securities Finance for Institutional Investors

 

Presentation by:

  • Tijana Stojanovic, Senior Account Manager, FleishmanHillard
  • Radek Stech, Executive Chair, ICSF


As Europe begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no doubt that that the sustainable finance agenda will play an integral part in that recovery process. As retail investors increasingly demand other outcomes from their investments than simply profit, this session will debate where Europe is on this journey.

 
To open, there will be two brief presentations on the broader regulatory and policy aims and objectives of the European Commission, amongst others, followed by an update from the ISLA Council for Sustainable Finance (ICSF), that was launched at the start of 2020. This will be followed directly by a panel of industry protagonists, who will consider how our markets have to respond to these changing sentiments and the crucial role that securities lending can play in developing these new investment norms.

1400(BST): Perspectives & Conclusions from ISLA‚Äč 


To conclude the webinar series, and in conversation with Roy Zimmerhansl, Andrew Dyson will discuss the key highlights and talking points of the webinar series, and how ISLA’s own priorities relate to the broad array of topics covered over the preceding ten days. A number of common threads or themes run across the sessions, which in many ways encapsulate the challenges facing the industry today.  During this fireside chat, the two will attempt to bring these various strands together and provide some context for the remainder of 2020 into 2021.
