Finextra and the FISD partner for webcasts in 2010

The Financial Information Services Division (FISD) and Finextra have forged a partnership to deliver a series of video webcasts for market data and risk management professionals worldwide with a focus on real-time data management and delivery, reference data, and standards.

The events will be hosted in-studio and broadcast via real-time or recorded streaming video to an invited audience of financial professionals. Participants will be able to interact with panelists during the live webcasts via real-time Q&As.

The FISD/Finextra partnership builds on Finextra's established Finextra Live brand of webcast events. Past webcasts have been broadcast from London, Hong Kong and New York. Participants have included senior representatives from HSBC, Nomura, Citi, Morgan Stanely, Societe Generale, Credit Suisse, Bank of America, Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland. Over 2,500 people working within the financial industry have registered to attend Finextra video webcasts since March 2009.

Tom Davin, managing director of FISD, says "A survey of FISD members revealed that more of them would like to interact with FISD programs and thought leadership via more sophisticated technologies. Our partnership with Finextra aims to provide timely and relevant topics and discussion to our member base and beyond via interactive video content."

Nick Hastings, managing director of Finextra, says: "This new service will provide the industry with a forum to discuss and learn about key issues affecting global data management via emerging and innovative communication mediums."
