It was announced on Tuesday that representatives of more than 30 of Fidessa LatentZero’s clients from North America and Europe met in Boston at the firm’s fourth annual client conference. The event proved to be the largest held to date.
The conference commenced with keynote addresses from Fidessa LatentZero CEO Richard Jones, and Mark Ames, CEO of Fidessa in North America. Lunchtime keynotes were also given by Michael Pusateri, CTO of Highland Capital on 'Bank loans explained - structure and processing,' and Beth-Ann Coleman, compliance director at Nicholas Applegate Capital Management on 'Recent changes in investment compliance and resulting challenges'.
Fidessa says that break-out sessions were split into business and technical tracks, with attendees able to attend introductory and advanced training on the key functionality on all Fidessa LatentZero products. Moderated discussions were also held on Fidessa LatentZero's EMS, the use of alternative instruments and the impact of regulatory changes.
"The user conference has been a great opportunity for clients to share best practices," comments Brian MacDonald, vice president, technology, Legg Mason. "It was great to see Fidessa LatentZero’s executive staff and product managers working closely with their clients - a testament to the company's focus on ensuring they are building products their clients need in this rapidly changing environment," he adds.
"The user group was a huge success," says Cindy Arcari, director, North American sales and client management, LatentZero. "It was an extremely constructive, positive and highly enjoyable event," she remarks.
