Few WFIC 2019 Sponsorships are left!

WFIC 2019
FISD Would like to thank the many returning WFIC Sponsors; the conference is proving to be a hot ticket this cycle, with all previously announced sponsorships sold out.  Very limited Bronze Sponsorships are still available, including booths and branding opportunities. We’re also open to creative sponsorship ideas—if you don’t see what you want listed, please contact Tracey Shumpert to discuss. 

FISD Executive Committee Elections
Voting is open now through January 11th to fill positions on the FISD Executive Committee (EC) for two-year terms which begin in 2019. 19 Nominees are running for the 12 positions, 4 open in each of the three FISD constituency areas: exchanges, vendors (data, software, hardware, services), and consumer firms.  Ballots have been submitted to the main contacts at all member firms.   Please contact Tracey Shumpert if you have questions about voting for your firm.

FISD 2018 Video Library


Throughout the year, FISD was able to record certain presentations so our members could enjoy the content long after the event is over. Click Here to view the full video library, which includes that January New York Learning & Libations as well as the June London Lunch & Learn. To login please use you FISD username and password. 

Volunteers Needed for Data Provider Evaluation Pilot
The FISD Executive Committee has approved a Pilot Program that will enable Data Providers (e.g. exchanges, traditional data vendors, index providers, etc.) to receive feedback related to their communications and product management programs.
The Data Provider Evaluation Program (DPEP) will enable Data Providers to review confidential feedback from members of the FISD’s Service Level & Communications Working Group. The feedback relates to how well a Data Provider adheres to the suggested recommendations contained in the Group’s Best Practices document.

The Working Group encourages more exchanges and Data Providers to volunteer for feedback and more FISD members to provide feedback (in a quick easy-to-use survey). Contact Nick Merritt for additional information.

Share Your News in the FISD Newsletter
Members can have their press releases, events, white papers, blogs, news articles and job postings featured in the FISD Newsletter. Delivered monthly to thousands of financial information professionals, the newsletter is a great place to spread your news. Email relevant material to Michael Zingali with the subject line "FISD Newsletter Submission".
