FISD Newsletter – April 2021

Back to Basics. What is the FISD FIA?

For those members who are not aware or are relatively new to FISD, the FISD Financial Information Associate (FISD FIA) is a credential trusted by over 2,000 market data professionals. Designed specifically for this industry, the syllabus challenges your mastery of four key topics: Markets, Data, Technology, and Issues & Trends. Score at least 75% on a 150-question exam and earn the recognition you deserve for your expertise. The v4.0 edition is updated to reflect what you need to know about alternative data, ESG, cloud, AI, and more in order to be successful.

Your peers have used the FISD FIA to:

  • Set goals that will energize their staff
  • Educate new team members
  • Improve communication with clients
  • Establish baseline market data industry knowledge
  • Demonstrate a commitment to excellence
Learning more about the market data ecosystem will build both your resume and your confidence, but trying to gain expertise without a structured plan amounts to little more than guesswork and wasted time. There are plenty of credentials out there for financial services professionals. The FISD FIA is for you if you work in market data. Are you ready to get better at your job? Visit the FISD Professional Certification website to learn more and register.

FISD 2020 Year in Review Now Available

It has been a year since most of the world was locked down to stop the spread of COVID-19 and FISD transitioned from in-person to virtual member activities.  A few months ago we asked FISD members to submit photos of themselves showcasing their new work lives.  The Year in Review for 2020 was the result of those submissions. FISD would like to thank all of our members who submitted photos for the YIR. 

WFIC Loyalty Program Reminder

We recognize that uncertainties due to the pandemic may cause members to delay in registering for WFIC and making travel-related commitments, and thus the popular early-bird registration discount  and the Consumer Travel Stipend Program may be of limited value. For WFIC 2022, we will be recognizing long-term members’ loyalty to FISD by offering them a discounted admission rate or, in the case of our consumer members, a travel stipend – right up until the start of WFIC. Important deadline: To be considered a long-term member – and receive the discounted admission rate (or travel stipend for consumer members) – a firm must be an FISD member continuously from April 1, 2021 through the date of WFIC. Please let us know if you have any questions. We’ll provide more updates about the date and location of WFIC and the commercials as soon as this information is available.
