Seeing Regulation with 2020 Vision: An Exploration of What Lies Ahead
Moderator: William Troost, Bloomberg
Laura Astrada, DTCC
Jacob Lesser, MSRB
Mark Montoya, FDIC
An upcoming election year brings heightened scrutiny of regulation and, in turn, regulators. What should regulatory bodies do to develop policies that will drive impact? ISITC leads a discussion on the most pressing challenges facing regulators in 2019 and how they will impact the 2020 mindset. Hear from regulators as they share their plans for engaging with the financial services industry, as well as insight into the process and protocols they must follow along the way.


Tuesday General Session

Emerging Trends and Opportunities for Federal Data Policy
Nick Hart, Data Coalition
The data landscape is rapidly evolving in the Federal government as new data laws and a new Federal Data Strategy are implemented in 2019. The increased focus on data-driven government and evidence-based policymaking means government agencies are rapidly organizing for new management requirements and approaches in the years to come. Other changes are on the horizon as Congress considers additional data legislation that could affect regulatory and grant reporting for years to come. New data policies offer opportunities for vast improvements for government to better serve the American people – but only if implemented well.

The Media's Roadmap: Getting the Pulse in Washington
Moderator: Alison Wolpert, DTCC
Andrew Ramonas, Bloomberg
Pete Schroeder, Reuters
Nathan Stovall, S&P Global Market Intelligence
Keeping a beat on what’s going on in Washington can be complicated with the impacts of elections, a potential recession, and Brexit on the horizon, but the media serves as a guide to educate the public on the most up-to-date information. Hear from journalists at the top media outlets as they share their insight on the most pressing topics they're tackling concerning politics, shifting global dynamics, the economy, and regulation, as well as the most important questions to ask of financial leaders as we move forward as an industry.
