Waters Wavelength Podcast Episode 93: Recaps of Sibos Toronto, Risk USA & Sifma DC

This week Anthony and James discuss some of the major stories to come out of three major conferences.

Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.

 

This week on the podcast, Anthony and James look at the October conference scene, with recaps of Sibos in Toronto, Risk USA in New York, and Sifma in Washington DC. They wrap things up by looking at the World Series and the Yankees’ shocking decision to not re-sign Joe Girardi as manager.

2:00 James talks about Sibos and how the disruptors (fintechs) have been disrupted (by the banks).

4:15 James then gives his opinion as to whether or not it’s worthwhile to attend Sibos. (Sydney 2018!)

6:00 On to Risk USA, where—lo and behold—risk managers are learning about the importance of technology and data! They also talk about how banks all of a sudden DO want to be tech companies! (My, how things change.)

10:00 An interesting story from Risk USA: Vendors may have over-promised and under-delivered on their ability to provide accurate information for the fixed-income market, risk officers say, ahead of a looming go-live date in December 2018.

18:00 Down in DC, SEC chairman Jay Clayton heard from industry participants on the need to delay the Consolidated Audit Trail’s implementation.

22:00 Finally, they wrap things up by looking at the Houston Astros’ mighty run to the World Series and the New York Yankees’ shocking decision that that Joe Girardi will not be coming back as manager.
