Next week, from June 14-16th, Eze Castle Integration will be participating in the 2011 SIFMA Financial Services Technology Expo at the Hilton in New York City. Several Eze Castle representatives will be in attendance for the event, so be sure to stop by Booth #1861 if you are in the Exhibit Hall!

In preparation for this event, we have been reviewing the conference agenda. This year’s program will highlight several key issues including adapting to the industry’s new regulatory environment that exists as a result of the Dodd-Frank legislation, as well as other important technology-related hot topics.

To help you get a jump start on the event, we have compiled a list of the most pertinent and interesting discussion topics that will be covered at this year’s SIFMA conference:

Dodd-Frank Compliance

complianceWith key Dodd-Frank deadlines looming for investment firms, and the SEC considering whether to implement extensions, the financial industry is buzzing over this influential piece of legislation. As firms work to ensure that they are compliant with these new regulations, we can’t help but be excited to hear from leading industry experts on the latest updates and helpful hints for meeting Dodd-Frank standards. Here are our top picks for Dodd-Frank seminars to check out at SIFMA:

  • Key Data Elements to Achieve Dodd Frank Compliance - A Practical Approach
    • Featuring speakers from Ernst & Young, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd.
  • Dodd-Frank Impact On The Financial Services Industry
    • Featuring speakers from Davis Polk, Oliver Wyman, Promontory Financial Group, Senate Committee on Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs, and Harvard Law School

Cloud Computing

Over the past year, cloud computing has emerged as one of the most popular buzz terms in the financial services industry. As more and more hedge funds are becoming interested in hosted infrastructures, we have been working with clients to both educate them on cloud computing and help them migrate to this type of environment in applicable cases.
