FISD Welcomed Record # of New Members in 2022

During 2022, FISD membership grew from 208 to 259 companies with over 60 new members joining. The new members include a mix of banks, buyside firms, vendors and exchanges.

FISD Toastmasters Chapter

Participating regularly in a Toastmasters club can help you become a better public speaker, a stronger communicator, and a more effective leader. FISD is working to start a virtual chapter that could meet at ET lunchtime/GMT end of day to give members free access to the celebrated Toastmasters curriculum as well as an opportunity to get to know a small group more intimately. Participation will be limited to 30 people. Contact Hope Wilkes to learn more or get on the invitation list for a trial meeting led by Toastmasters staff.

FISD Netherlands

Come join us next Wednesday, Jan. 25 at Rabobank in Utrecht at our traditional annual Dutch meeting where we have a very fresh and exciting program waiting for you. From a Virtual Reality demo, a young & mixed group to discuss talent recruitment to procuring the ESG way! This, plus some important & topical updates, and as always, the network drinks to widen your intel circles.

FISD New York

Join your fellow FISD colleagues for the first event of the year in NYC on Feb. 9 at Deutsche Bank to discuss what is ahead for 2023. Topics include digital assets, the cloud meta-trend, recent acquisitions in the market data world and more, followed by a reception to network with old and new friends in the industry.

Can You Host Us in NYC? Two Opportunities:

  • FISD Rising Stars – April 2023
    FISD plans to hold a Rising Stars Happy Hour in New York in April. FISD’s Rising Stars activities bring together market data professionals who are on the younger side, earlier in their careers, or generally striving to grow. If you can host a reception for ~50 people in your office, please contact Hope Wilkes.
  • FISD FIA Training – June 2023
    There’s a British invasion afoot! The inimitable David Anderson is planning a trip to the Big Apple to coincide with the May 31 FISD New York event. While he’s here, David will be teaching a two-day course covering everything you need to know to pass your FISD FIA exam. The course will be open to the public. If you can host about a dozen people in a classroom-like setting, please get in touch with David Anderson. Registration and commercials are coming soon.
