The 11th DKF Congress on Financial Information was held as an online event from May 4-6. Over 1300 visitors saw 50 presentations and panel discussions on current topics in the financial information industry. In addition, there was a virtual trade show event with over 30 vendors, each of whom was able to showcase their products at a virtual booth.
Originally, the event was established for the German-speaking region. It grew to become the largest financial information congress in the world with 1000 visitors. The event ban during Corona was an opportunity for us because we could also welcome guests from Asia and America at the digital format.
Among other things, the strategy of the London Stock Exchange in the acquisition of Refinitiv was presented. Several presentations were dedicated to the topic of sustainability. The so-called ESG (Economic, Social, Governmental) data is a great impetus for providers because the entire financial industry is strongly aligned with it.
We would like to thank all sponsors and guests and are already looking forward to next year, where we will hopefully meet again in person. However, we will keep the digital format and thus continue to grow the community.
