On the 7th October 2010, SIX Telekurs opened its series of Securities Valuations Roadshow events in New York. SIX Telekurs hosted events in 15 different cities, in 12 countries worldwide throughout the autumn. The series closed in Casablanca on the 16th December 2010 with just under 100 guests attending that particular event. The Roadshow was very successful this year, especially in bringing together various leaders from the industry, in addressing topical issues, and in discussing important regulatory points.
SIX Telekurs works closely with regulators, official bodies, auditors and industry experts that deal with regulatory developments in the field of securities valuations. SIX Telekurs has been playing a pivotal role in industry working groups, advocating standards and promoting transparency. SIX Telekurs actively participates with global standards organisations to define and adopt relevant standards that promote straight-through processing.
Through this series of road shows, SIX Telekurs was targeting professionals who are responsible for securities valuations as part of their daily work. These include compliance officers, product controllers, portfolio managers, custodians, fund managers, private bankers, back office professionals and software companies.
"Once again in 2010 our Roadshow proved to be a great platform on which to share ideas, and it also served as a unique networking opportunity for our customer community. Thanks to great contributions from our guests speakers, all the debates highlighted the fact that securities valuation is a key industry issue. It is a challenge that has to be looked at in the broader context of reference data management", comments David Lecompte, Market Development Manager at SIX Telekurs and speaker at a number of the events.
Richard Newbury, Market Development Manager at SIX Telekurs and another speaker at the events adds: "As with last year, it was great to meet so many of our customers face to face and to explore some of the complexities around finding a value for assets together. It is a challenging area and many of our customers appreciated the fact that we were addressing this complicated area. We are grateful to all of our customers and auditors who presented with us."
