ISLA 21st Annual International Securities Lending Conference 2012
Thank you for attending ISLA's 21st Annual International Securities Lending Conference 2012 in Madrid!
We were extremely  pleased with the conference, and initial feedback suggests that delegates found the event very productive in terms of the conference sessions, networking opportunities and business meetings. As expected we had a strong focus on regulation, but John Billige’s update on tax matters was very well received as were the sessions on funding, new markets and trading strategies. For all of the people who gave up their time to plan this year’s event it was rewarding to see standing room only in the conference room on more than one occasion. Both keynote speeches were excellent and attendance at the roundtable discussions was up significantly on the previous two years. We hope that those of you who attended enjoyed the debate.
