Successful second D-A-CH congress for financial information (DKF 2012) organised by Screen

MUNICH, March 27, 2012 – On March 27th, 2012 the D-A-CH Congress for Financial Information (DKF 2012) took place at the Hotel Sofitel Bayerpost in Munich, Germany. DKF 2012 is a joint initiative of Screen Markets, AG, and IDS GmbH (an Allianz company) and the central networking event for the German-speaking financial information industry in Munich, the natural centre of gravity between Frankfurt, Vienna and Zurich, and the capital of asset owners with over 300 billion Euro worth of investment assets. It brings together business executives, solution providers and opinion leaders from the financial services industry.

The Screen Group was also present with a booth at this second products and services event for the D-A-CH+ professional financial services community.

With around 30 exhibiting vendor organizations and over 700 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 demand management (analytics & self certification), 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 featured five tracks and included several panel discussions, including “Increasing regulatory requirements, volatile markets and the growing importance of illiquid assets are the new market data drivers”, “Shifting tectonic plates: the rise and fall of investing in sovereign debt and the consequences for the asset management industry” and “The growing importance of Ultra Low Latency and High Frequency trading, and its impact on the economy”.

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 two events the 2013 edition was already pre-announced. It will take place on 30 April, 2013.
