We are pleased to announce our first 20 investor registrations for the 2017 Finadium Investors in Securities Lending (FISL) conferences. We’ve also rounded out our roster of keynote speakers in both New York and London. Here are the details.
In New York, we now have registrations from the following institutions:
MetLife Investments (2)
Summit Rock Advisors

We are very pleased to note that registrations are coming not just from securities finance professionals but also from portfolio managers, trading, operations and treasury. This diversity is an important part of our conference success, and we encourage a greater number of buy-side market participants to join us across organizational departments.
In London, we are excited to announce that Dr. Jean-Pierre Zigrand, Co-Director of the LSE’s Systemic Risk Centre, will be our keynote presenter on Day 1. Dr. Zigrand also sits on the Bank of England’s Macroprudential Panel – Market Subgroup. He will speak on asset managers, systemic risk and possible solutions to current risk challenges.
Dr. Zigrand joins Sir Ranulph Fiennes, our London keynote speaker for Day 2. Sir Ranulph is an internationally known explorer with 18 major expeditions to his credit, including his Arctic Solo Expedition and discovery of the Lost City of Ubar in Oman’s desert Empty Quarter.
