Late October 2012 saw an RMA conference on risk management in Dallas, the annual FIA conference in Chicago, and a catastrophic natural disaster in and around New York. While these were separate events with very different impact levels, all three were connected by the complexity of modern risk management, what it means, and how its outputs can be understood and used.
Last week, I spoke on a panel about operational efficiency at FIA Clearing 2010 – A Derivatives Forum in New York. I was joined by panel chair Brian Peldunas; Philippe Buhannic, chairman & CEO, TradingScreen; Edward Licciardo, vice president, Deutsche Bank Securities; and Lenny Musso, director, Futures Operations, Citigroup Global Markets, who all helped make the session dynamic and smart. I was glad to participate in this timely discussion.
On October 21, 2009, I attended a session at the FIA Expo in Chicago on the subject of upcoming regulatory changes and increased oversight and wanted to share some insight from the panelists.
