The British Are Coming
Paul Revere might say that again if he were still with us -  in reality, it is only one very friendly and unthreatening Brit – FISD’s UK based David Anderson traveling to facilitate our first FISD Boston event for several years on Tuesday May 7th. This will be open to our Buy Side members as it is part of the wider FISD Buy Side initiative that David is leading the charge on. Eaton Vance at their Downtown office at 2 International Place will be hosting; we owe a big thanks to David Lochiatto for arranging his firm as hosts. We will get off to an early start at 2 pm aiming to finish by 6 pm so that our valued colleagues from NYC could do the trip in a day. This news is hot off the press but in due course, we will have more to report on what will be discussed – send ideas to David Anderson if you have them.

Recognizing the few, the proud, the Data Licensing Specialists
Toast overheard at the DLS St. Patrick’s Day celebration: “One bottle for the nine of us, thank goodness there’s no more of us!”

The holders of the DLS credential know they’re breathing rarefied air. They passed a tough exam that separates the great licensing experts from the merely good ones. If you can spot a blue badge at an FISD event, shake that person’s hand and ask them about the test. While the DLS holders might be happy being part of a small elite club, FISD would like to see that club grow (and we think it’d benefit the industry). Please join us in congratulating these DLS holders on their achievement:
