FISD Office Closed Dec. 23-Jan. 2

Twas the night before holiday break and all through the FISD office, not an employee was stirring, not even a consultant. Our out of offices were set with contact details, in hopes that vacation would soon be there. WFIC is over and programming is done–now just planning on 2023 fun.

AsiaFIC

Support is essential and we have been lucky to get bucketloads of support for our new AsiaFIC event in Singapore May 3-4, 2023. A massive thanks to our three founding Sponsors – Bloomberg; Refintiv and SGX, plus our two Golds – SIX and Tradition Data, and of course Visible Alpha our first Silver. These early sponsors enable us to energetically plan for a great event. Early sponsorship is enormously helpful, but we have room for more – so please hurry while the opportunity is there.
