FIF Launches Webinar Series on New SEC Market Data Infrastructure Rules

The Financial Information Forum (FIF), an industry association that addresses new regulatory requirements implementation, held the first of a series of webinars to assist its members (brokers, exchanges, vendors) in understanding the technical and operational challenges they will face in moving to the new market data infrastructure for consolidating and distributing real-time market data.

The first webinar of the series was on February 1st where Wayne Aaron of Vedder Price, presented a summary of the rule and interacted with Matt Billings of Two Sigma and Tom Jordan of FIF on clarifications and views. The session also included audience participation, (8% of participants read all 898 pages) and questions (12 questions, 2 of which were answered real-time other 10 through webinar follow-up).

The Financial Information Forum was founded in 1995 to help industry participants meet regulatory requirements, perform market data capacity analysis and formulate technology strategies. Early projects were the Year 2000 conversion, decimalization and the Order Audit Trail System (OATS). Recently, FIF played a key role in implementing the Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT) system and changes to SEC Rule 606 reporting requirements.  FIF recognizes that this new SEC Rule garners strong interest from the FIF Community as it affects the same firms as CAT, SEC Rule 606, Trade Reporting and Compliance Engine (TRACE) and Market Data delivery.

There is significant interest in this topic as evidenced by the over 150 registrants to the first webinar, 72 letters to the SEC and 71 SEC visits.  The rule is complex and FIF will continue its webinar series with the next webinar scheduled for February 8th which will concentrate on The Data-core, odd-lots, round lots, regulatory and depth of book. This will be followed by Governance and Pricing on February 22nd and Competing Consolidators on March 1st. FIF Members will receive invites for all upcoming webinars. If your firm is not a FIF Member, you may request access by emailing fifinfo@fif.com.
