IRN is pleased to bring you the 2nd Annual Energy Trading Operations and Technology 2012 Summit 13th - 14th November in Houston
The 2nd Annual Energy Trading Operations and Technology 2012 Summit is dedicated to bringing together key actors within the energy arena; from utilities and energy trading firms, to investment banks, energy hedge funds and energy investing firms, as well as the regulators and exchanges. This summit provides an unparalleled platform to address the latest Dodd-Frank regulations, swap derivatives and the affects this has on technological and operational challenges for energy trading companies who must comply.
Following the success of the forum last year in Houston, where we brought over 80 senior level delegates together, IRN is pleased to bring you an even stronger forum to continue to address the most pressing issues within operations and technology in the energy trading arena.
ETOT 2012 happens at a time of necessity when companies will find out whether they are a swap dealer, and what they must implement within their technological and operational strategies in order to fully comply with the regulatory restrictions of the Dodd-Frank Act. The regulatory changes have substantial implications for back office procedures, as they have pressed for greater efficiency within IT structures and more stringent measures within compliance, reporting, analytics, data management and risk management. This means energy trading business need to review all operational and technology to both ensure compliance and maximise efficiency in tight timelines.
Through a mixture of creative and constructive workshops, live streams sectioning into business and technology updates, the summit aims to investigate the latest redevelopments within IT systems, how the Dodd-Frank Act regulations and ambiguity around defining a swap will affect position limits, data regulations, real time reporting, agreements, cross-border agreements. There is also comprehensive coverage of all the latest around collateral management, clearing & settlements, trade documentation, operational risk and a strong control framework around back office operation.
ETOT continues in creating a perfect networking platform for companies to continue to discover the best practical tools, techniques, technologies and process in order to keep their operational and technological systems up-to-date with the latest regulatory demands.
ETOT 2012 is also the ideal forum to meet your fellow peers, discuss the latest trends and gain insights into the most up-to-date industry challenges surrounding operational and technological trends within the energy trading. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet senior level executives and industry professionals, from the relevant regulatory authorities and associations, utilities and energy trading firms, to investment banks, energy hedge funds and energy investing firms.
