Introduction to FISD Surveys; how can you participate and receive results?

FISD is introducing survey questions when event participants register for its events.  There will be a handful (3-5) questions asked at the end of registration and another handful asked as part of the post-event survey.  Respondents will receive a spreadsheet with anonymous results to the survey.

Each FISD center will be asked the same pre-/post-event questions in the first half of the year.  We will repeat the process with new questions in the second half of the year.

Respondents that attend both first and second half events in their respective centers will also receive the global amalgamation of responses.

FISD members are invited to supply questions for the survey!

Information provider policies: who are leaders in forward thinking?

As trading technology and financial services evolve the Information Providers (exchanges, ECNs, IDB's) update their policies and commercial terms to respond to the business transformation.   Who do market participants identify as the forward thinking leaders in the policy and commercial domains?  How do they introduce change and how do they use their relationships and position in the market to encourage adoption of new behaviours?
