Delegates had this to say about recent SCI events

CDS Seminar, New York 1st July 2010:
Overall definitely useful; some new information, some I knew, but always good to get another angle on things
Regulatory speaker was awesome - very good how she differentiated herself from the politicians
Very good from a competitive standpoint; glad I attended
Valuable event - enjoyed it - lots yet to be learned in the area
Helped clear a lot of things up and helped us prepare where we need to be for central clearing
Very educational on cds central clearing
Well organised - thanks
Helpful, good to re-iterate discussions and meet with colleagues to see what's going on
Good for regulatory coverage, and information on moving to central clearing was useful
Idea was fantastic - execution was good; networking was very good
Very informative and detailed 
Very good networking opportunities
Central clearing panel was excellently run
Always great events - love being able to pop out to SCI events in the city - agenda usually very current
Good clearing participants and buy side perspective was useful
The conference was focussed and the segments were substantive. I got what I wanted out of this event
Regulatory perspective was excellent, and most speakers spoke with authority
Clearing & Regulatory sessions were very useful - this is why I attended
Particularly valuable to meet with the banks clearing CDS trades
Good - wanted to attend as I needed an idea of what regulators were thinking.

"We should still close some business from the contacts I met at the last SCI event. We had some very good leads - leads with cash - the only kind that count in this market." - Sponsor of SCI'08 New York 
"The conference comprehensively covered recent structural developments, including the latest financial innovations in credit markets."

Sujay Shah, Analyst, Markets, Bank of England
"We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this conference. The panel discussions' moderators .... managed to be both provacative and even-handed. The organisers selected absolutely the right topics and the right people to make the most of the opportunity. I look forward to the next event." 

VP Credit Sales, Nomura International
"My experience was extremely good. It's always tough to take a day away from the desk, so I pick my conferences carefully. Exotics '07 had a great mix of speakers, with real depth: people who make it happen talking about key issues and themes in the structured credit markets."

Anonymous buy-side delegate
"The conference agenda exactly captured the current issues of the market which need discussion. The speakers brought along with them both analytical depth and market insight."
