Creating a single customer view, driving strategic decisions and managing risk

Businesses need to use a lot more information than they used to when making strategic decisions across market and product expansion. Diana will explain how she implemented structured change to re-orientate existing service propositions to changing markets and client need. This was underpinned by data, particularly company hierarchies, to achieve a single customer view across the firm’s existing footprint and expansion opportunities. The result was the ability to identify key opportunities alongside a robust understanding of the risks.

Diana Downing, Founder - Lacuna Solutions

Panel Discussion: Is LEI genuinely worth implementing right now?

Paul Cullender, Head of Client Reference Data & Client On-Boarding IT, RBS

Hayley Barker, Client Regulatory Programme, LEI Programme Manager, Barclays Capital
Gail Jewsbury, VP Risk Products, Alacra

Everyone agrees LEI is a good thing. Good for businesses, good for customers and good for the regulators. Ever since FIMA conference started 10 years ago the issue of standards and standardisation has been core to every data manager’s agenda. Banks and buy side have been pushing to adopt one legal entity identifier to get rid of huge inconsistencies, silos and the overload of data processing work. LEIs are now on the regulator’s agenda and seem to be getting close to reality. But are they? Join this panel debate to find out if in practical terms you will see the success of LEIs across the financial community in the near future. Find out about:

  • Genuine timescales for LEI implementation from the regulators
  • Practical realities for implementation across all financial institutions
  • Preparing your systems to introduce and use LEI’s
  • Managing architecture and LEI use across your business
  • Working with customers, partners and clearing houses
  • Financial implications of introducing LEIs



16:30

Using big data to predict the future and anticipate disaster in both markets and society.

Technology is becoming deeply interwoven into the fabric of society. We develop methods for continuous, automated analysis of online data in order to anticipate and detect significant societal events, such as political crises, humanitarian crises, mass violence, riots, mass migrations, disease outbreaks, economic instability, resource shortages, and responses to natural disasters.

Tobias Preis will outline some recent highlights of his research, addressing two questions. Firstly, can big data resources provide insights into crises in financial markets? By analysing Google query volumes for search terms related to finance, we find patterns which may be interpreted as early warning signs of stock market moves. Secondly, can we provide insight into international differences in economic wellbeing by comparing patterns of interaction with the Internet? To answer this question, we introduce a future-orientation index to quantify the degree by which Internet users seek more information about years in the future than years in the past. Our results illustrate the potential that comes from combining extensive behavioural data sets to give us a better understanding of large scale human economic behaviours.

Innovative & systemic use of data:
Moderated by: Mark Uksusman, Sr. Manager, Data Architecture, eBay

Network, benchmark and learn from your peers – use the roundtables to get answers to your questions!

Heads of reference data and data architects don’t often get the chance to meet others in their field in small groups of 10-12 professionals, all of them doing similar jobs on similar levels in similar financial institutions. This session is an opportunity for data managers to meet their peers during a round tables session.

The advantage is that you may obtain a new technical resource, or someone to bounce ideas off, or find a valuable professional mentor. But obvious benefits aside, it is always agreable to chat with someone who does your job outside your own company, and who understands the challenges and frustrations of your position.

  • Ask questions and find out if others are facing similar challenges.
  • Conference sessions often have limited Q&A time. This means that sometimes, you don’t get an in-depth technical answer to your question. But round table sessions do allow you to thoroughly explore an issue with the aid of a knowledgeable, experienced moderator, allowing the in depth insight that we all seek.
  • Get different viewpoints. Every data management strategy and architecture is different. This generates vastly different experiences and viewpoints on subjects like architecture, governance, LEI, data depositories, transparency, regulatory compliance, IT and skill set development . Getting outside viewpoints may present challenges you wouldn’t have seen coming or solutions not otherwise considered. 

Share your own knowledge and expertise. Not only can you access and gain strategies you need for a specific project you’re working on, but you can also share your own experiences and knowledge with other heads of desks. You can build credibility, expand your network and help a colleague out.

Case Study: New ideas and strategies for securities pricing business models

Liam Davis, Senior VP, Citi

Most financial institutions suffer from inconsistent information regarding the security master file, counterparties, accounts and customers. The data is stored in multiple, disparate databases across the enterprise. This leads to duplication of data, reconciliation expenses, sluggish response and time-to-market, multiple data standards that need to be maintained, silos and redundancy within systems. Join this talk and case study presentation to find out how, at Citi, they deal with the challenges of:
  • Standardisation issues
  • Data reconciliation challenges
  • Creating automated systems and dynamic data governance rules
  • Data harmonisation strategies
  • Enabling effective decision-making on all levels with quality data across the enterprise

14:30

Community-Driven Compliance

Jeff Sidell, CTO, Strevus 

As the customer is getting more sophisticated in their use of data across enterprise, so will the data vendors. Most data managers have been charged with cutting costs by eliminating unused data feeds, expensive SLAs and unneeded data capacities. This means data vendors need to change their product offerings and SLAs. Join this panel to discuss how data vendors are adapting to the changing market conditions and what you can do to minimise data acquisition and licensing costs. Find out about:
  • Main challenges in data licencing – what is costing you most
  • Finding unnecessary spend
  • Re-negotiating SLAs and licencing agreements with vendors
  • Building new flexible models for data use according to the changing needs of your enterprise
  • Setting goals and measuring savings and efifciencies

Panel: Examining business benefits and challenges of implementing and running collaborative data strategies

Tony B. Coates (Tony), Information Architect – Group CTO, UBS
Tobias Preis, Founder and Managing Director, Artemis Capital Asset Management

For too long, small central teams often within IT functions (IT architecture, Logical Data Model Group, Data Dictionary Teams etc.) have tried to get a handle on the data problem. Not only do these functions lack the business language, context and engagement to be of value day to day, but their artefacts are handcrafted with no way to integrate and enrich one another.

In the consumer world millions of people are freely and effectively contributing on wikipedias, web forums, open source projects etc. but in the corporate world, it seems we still content ourselves with writing word documents which we email back and forth.

This panel is set up in order for you to discover the benefits of open, collaborative and self-regulating data management. You will hear about:
  • Collective understanding around data
  • Leveraging modern web techniques, and getting every business function to contribute their knowledge around the data items they understand well.
  • Governance rules for collaborative data management
  • Business benefits and risks of such approaches

14:00

Overview of the current regulatory initiatives and their impact on your business

PJ Di Giammarino, CEO, JWG Group

Regulation is coming thick and fast. Seventy thousand pages per year fast!

Dealing with this deluge with a page-by-page, regulation-by-regulation approach is becoming impossible as the G20 commitments become spread across many rulebooks. This means that firms trying to tackle the changes one-by-one will end up with sky-high implementation costs and conflicting priorities - unless they take action now to pull it all together.
{b}What is needed in this space is a consolidated approach, which looks at how regulation as a whole aligns, by examining overlapping requirements for their lowest common denominators.

In our presentation, we focus on the top-down ‘helicopter view’ – concentrating on the OTC derivatives reforms (i.e., EMIR, Dodd Frank et al) that are ‘here and now’ - and help you navigate the maze of other requirements in the remaining 60,000 pages, including:

► Risk: Risk data, Basel III and Solvency II
► Trading: MiFID II, AIFMD, REMIT and the FTT
► Financial crime: FATF, AMLD IV and FATCA
► Structural and infrastructural: Vickers/Volker, RRPs, BAD, conduct risk and operational risk
► Universal data challenges: LEIs, CICIs, GEIs, UPIs, data privacy and regulatory reporting. If you want to know what the unknowns are in your 2014 operations and technology challenges, don’t miss this discussion.

Should the European banks be casting a watchful eye on our colleagues in the US, where large banks have been mandated to provide regular data submissions to the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) for stress testing purposes? With the recent introduction of monthly data submissions (FR Y-14M) and highly prescriptive quality checks, the Fed is setting the agenda for US banks on credit risk data management. This spotlight on data is driving the need for robust and structured data management processes and aiding banks to focus in very specific areas. This more prescriptive approach could also be beneficial to European financial institutions.

In this session we will discuss the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) and ourexperiences from working with some of the largest US banks including:
· Data management challenges
· Implementing the tests – lessons learned
· Transfer to business ownership for IT process
· Move to proactive data governance

Your regulatory burden for 2014: reference data you must have in place to remain compliant with new regulations

Managing compliance in the data-centric era 

Besides taxes another given, is change. This includes both changes in risk and changes in data. Today’s environment of changing regulations and other upheavals have increased the number of risks and the pace of change. Compliance methodologies must take into account this state of flux that will likely continue into the future. Understanding where the data is and where it will be in the future is the biggest challenge for implementing tools that will provide for better decision making and process improvements.

Data lineage and the impact of architecture on the life of data

Dave Poole, Data Architect, Moneysupermarket.com

With 25% annual enterprise data growth, your business is facing rapidly escalating challenges in making complicated, higher value decisions - the sources, transformations, and movements of enterprise data are very difficult to track. For you to remain competitive, you must do a better job of leveraging enterprise data as an asset, while complying with business standards and mandatory regulations. If effective data lineage is out of reach, there can be greater penalties to pay. And the repercussions of doing nothing can ripple throughout an entire organization. Join this talk to hear how data architecture is helping Dave Poole to manage customers and data in the retail environment. Find out about:
  • Documenting workflow
  • Managing customer data
  • Managing customer enquiries
  • Strategies for data quality control
  • Getting rid of duplication and silos
  • Managing risk in different types of situation
  • Using data to manage business risk
  • Monitoring data use and governance

Data architecture : sticks & carrots

Colin Gibson, Head of Data Architecture, RBS Markets & International Banking

People who spend a lot of time thinking about Architecture tend to think that “Doing It Right” architecturally is plain common sense. But the vast majority of people involved in the analysis, design and implementation of change don’t spend a lot of time thinking about Architecture. As Head of Data Architecture, Colin works across M&IB to drive progress towards an agreed target state for how data is understood, sourced, stored and shared. He is responsible for creating, populating and leveraging the “Data KnowledgeBase” - a central repository of information about M&IB’s data. Find out from Colin how you can get “architectural common sense” to prevail?
  • What is Data Architecture, really?
  • What business value does a good Data Architecture offer?
  • What are the challenges to centralised enforcement of Architecture discipline?
  • Does the carrot offer more promise than the stick?

The investment in specialist hardware and software will be high. A managed service offers the highest quality enterprise and carrier grade solutions to customers. A fixed monthly payment plan means you know what you're going to get, and how much it's going to cost over the contract. Managed IT Service Providers can be extremely flexible; a pay-as-you-go payment plan allows for quick growth when necessary, or cost savings when you need to consolidate. There are however drawbacks, with risks and the possibility of costs spiralling out of control. Join this panel debate to learn about the questions you should be asking your managed services provider. Find out how to:
  • Set a long term managed services strategy
  • Identify goals, benchmarks and ROI
  • Choose your service provider based on your needs and cost savings
  • Manage risk – how much control do you release from “in-house”?
  • Managing the relationship with your service providers
  • Using their expertise to solve your problems
  • Changing SLA’s and getting good value for money
  • Measuring results – costs vs performance

Data lineage – what can you learn from the life of your data?
Moderated by: Dave Poole, Data Architect, Moneysupermarket.com

Technology is becoming deeply interwoven into the fabric of society. We develop methods for continuous, automated analysis of online data in order to anticipate and detect significant societal events, such as political crises, humanitarian crises, mass violence, riots, mass migrations, disease outbreaks, economic instability, resource shortages, and responses to natural disasters. Tobias Preis will outline some recent highlights of his research, addressing two questions. Firstly, can big data resources provide insights into crises in financial markets? By analysing Google query volumes for search terms related to finance, we find patterns which may be interpreted as early warning signs of stock market moves. Secondly, can we provide insight into international differences in economic wellbeing by comparing patterns of interaction with the Internet? To answer this question, we introduce a future-orientation index to quantify the degree by which Internet users seek more information about years in the future than years in the past. Our results illustrate the potential that comes from combining extensive behavioural data sets to give us a better understanding of large scale human economic behaviours.

Stream E
This NEW conference stream is designed to examine risk management as part of overall data management strategy. Senior level risk managers will be giving case study presentations and joining panel debates focused on the role of data, its utility and its future as part of risk strategy. Most financial institutions view data as the one and only saviour from dangerous risk taking, disasters and catastrophes. It is no surprise that risk managers look to data and operations for structured quality information to base their decisions and future plans.

Using data in operational risk management: what is changing, and how should you change your strategy?

Sophie Rutherford, Operational Risk Manager, RBS  

Data for operational risk is top of the agenda of every risk manager. From trading, to credit and debt exposure, everyone needs accurate and timely data. This talk is designed to show you how at RBS they use data to manage risk. You will learn about the changing challenges of managing data in line with the new risk data regulatory requirements. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the some of the most experienced operational risk managers in the industry. Find out about:
  • Regulatory requirements in risk data – what is changing
  • Tackling the data quality challenge – are you making decisions based on top data?
  • Building a strategy to enable flexible data use
  • Managing and measuring operational risk to enable your business to take further risk
  • Working with data, finance and operational colleagues on a joint risk management practice


14:30

Increasing systems and architecture efficiency to maximise business benefits of data

A strategy that can offer both the coverage and high-level accuracy needed to increase STP is a top priority for all types of firms, yet few can afford the investment necessary to achieve this. Working through a central data utility that incorporates mutualised and customised cleansing of reference data, can deliver the kind of efficiencies and data integrity that is affordable and relevant. Unlike conventional ways to solve data issues, by using deployed technology solutions, a central data utility works on the concept that the data needed for a firm to perform its core functions is common across the entire industry. Each firm’s individual standards can be adopted against specific client-driven profiles through the use of a central utility instead of completely reworking the data independently in-house.

 
  • Introducing a cost mutualisation model to data management
  • How a more centralised supply chain of financial data can improve information quality and reduce operational risk
  • Getting what you need out of an industry solution
