Screen present at the D-A-CH congress for financial information (DKF 2011)
MUNICH, April 5, 2011 – On April 5th, 2011 the first D-A-CH Congress for Financial Information (DKF 2011) took place at the Hotel Sofitel Bayerpost in Munich, Germany. DKF 2011 is a joint initiative of Screen Markets, financial.com AG, and IDS GmbH. The Screen Group was present at the event, which was the first products and services event for the D-A-CH+ professional financial services community.
With 520 visitors this high-profile event, featuring both a conference and an exhibition of the current range of solutions for data, applications and services to the financial industry, turned out being a big success. The Screen Group booth was well visited by customers, business relations and passers-by that were curious to learn more about Screen’s in-house developed cost & contract management system, INFOmatch, and its latest features related to invoice reconciliation, accrual and timeline reporting, budgeting and compliance. Furthermore, they showed a big interest in Screen’s leading consultancy practice dealing with market & reference data and investment management advisory services.
The conference part of the event included several panel discussions, including “The role of social media in the world of finance”, “Derivatives glut in the stock markets: implications for financial information industry” and “Evaluated pricing solutions: What have we learned from the financial crisis?”.
The one-day event turned out to be a perfect platform to learn more about the latest trends in technology for the professional investment industry. In addition to this it provided excellent networking and B2B opportunities. Given the success of the first event the 2012 session was already pre-announced. It will take place on 27 March, 2012.
