The Wall Street Transcript (TWST), the venerable publication of CEO and analyst interviews, will be hosting a Broker Vote Summit on October 22nd at The Harvard Club in New York City. The conference is well timed in light of regulatory pressure to increase transparency on research pricing and valuation. Readers of our blog are being offered a 15% discount on the registration fee.
The conference is being organized by TWST Events and features the Wall Street Transcript’s subsidiary MeetMax, which offers software to facilitate conferences and road shows. MeetMax also has a broker vote service.
The Broker Vote Summit will include buy side and sell side panels, as well as 1:1 meetings (using MeetMax’s conference software, naturally) and vendor workshops. Vendors of broker vote solutions, including Markit, Extel and State Street Global Markets as well as the host firm, will be in attendance. The key note speaker is David Maber, a professor at the University of Michigan who has authored a study on broker voting. The conference agenda can be found at http://brokervotesummit.com/.
Increasing regulatory scrutiny in the UK and Europe of research payments and pricing is bringing broker voting into the spotlight. Broker voting helps to increase transparency, and will most likely evolve further as a result of regulatory reform.
