CSI Roundtables 2017 New York / Boston London / Paris

From Afterthought To Growth Driver: The (R)Evolution of Compliance, Risk and Data Management

“CSI is a platform for compliance, operations, risk, legal, and tech leaders to share perspectives and best global practices for the industry.” Compliance in investment management, along with risk, technology and data management, is the centerpiece of upcoming global regulatory efforts, with a shift in culture and conduct. With potential black swan costs when mismanaged and a growing complexity of adhering to ever changing global/local regulatory and reporting requirements, the Compliance Strategy Institute (CSI) is a peer-to-peer platform for compliance, operations, legal, risk and technology executives to share perspectives, examine best practices and develop compliance thought leadership, in affiliation with Compliance Solutions Strategies (CSS).

CSI deals with the themes of strategic priority for investment management executives, as they think on a high level about compliance, risk, technology and their impact on business models and growth initiatives (CIO and board relations, next generation reporting, alternatives as the next compliance frontier, outsourcing compliance functions, reputation and regulation, etc).

Simultaneously, the institute addresses the more technical and operationally essential issues compliance, legal, tech and risk departments are faced with to ensure the sustainability and growth of their organizations (the “multi”-maze, product innovation, MIFID, PRIPS, GDPR, SEC amendments and changes, cost-benefit compliance analysis, changes in IT, data and reporting, and more).

In addition to providing proprietary research on regulatory trends, the CSI allows for yearlong peer-to-peer discussions, along with help around talent acquisition and management, data management, regulatory updates, and best practices for the industry through a membership format. The CSI 2017 executive roundtables spanned New York, Boston, London and Paris and included senior representation (alphabetically listed below) from global asset managers, hedge funds, private equity and boutique investment houses, wealth managers, the SEC, the European Central Bank, investment consultants, leaders in brand, fashion, new media, and think tanks, including:
