Setting the scene: why does your platform have data problems when regulations come into effect?
EMIR commenced exactly a month ago.

Your applications are suddenly thrown into a tizzy because they are encountering issues such as extended field lengths beyond the capabilities of your IT system.
This is not about a third party doing transaction reporting, this is about data that your regulators require you to attach to each transaction. What can you do from a practical data perspective to meet your regulator’s requirements?
Magnus Cattan, Director – Business Development (Asia), Interactive Data Corporation
Chris Johnson, Head of Product Management, Market Data Services, HSBC Securities Services, HSBC Securities Services

4:30 PM – 5:10 PM
Attention Market Data Managers: Chief Data Officer, Post-trade. Your Next Job!
The regulation for OTC markets will have a dramatic impact on you. There will be a requirement for at least three sources of pre-trade prices. Swaps will have to be reported to SEFs, CCPs and utlimately Swap Data Repositories (SDRs) in the U.S. and Trade Repositories outside the U.S. How are institutions expected to pass the trade messages to these repositories? All institutions trading OTC markets will have to get data feeds from the CCPs and SDRs/TRs. Can you subscribe to just one SDR/TR? Do you have to subscribe to each? What about the CCPs? Listen to the panel’s explanation.
Kishore Ramakrishnan, Executive Director, Financial Services Advisory, E&Y
Peter Tierney, Asia Head – Deriv/SERV, DTCC

5:10 PM – 5:50 PM
Market Data Inventory Management
Most institutions use a market data inventory management system. The panel will discuss how the industry has evolved from simply managing subscriptions. Have users and vendors changed their behaviour and services?
– How have behaviours and platform requirements changed?
– What do users and vendors need to do differently?
Simon Dambe, COO, Hong Kong, MDSL
David Dubery, Associate Director, European/APAC Operations, The Roberts Group
Chris Pittaway, Director, Global Head of Sales, CostOptics
