This event is open to members only.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Tracey Shumpert.

Join FISD at its first in-person event in New York in 2021.  Our program will highlight thought leadership and member insights from prominent members and industry experts.  After the program, catch up (in person) with your colleagues and make new contacts.

FISD takes COVID-19 very seriously. In keeping with New York City’s “Key to NYC Pass”, the venue will require attendees to provide proof of vaccination onsite and request the wearing of masks when seated in the auditorium listening to speakers. As much as possible, we will be spacing seating so that there is more distance between seats.  FISD will comply with local and national government rules – and the rules/policies of the venue.  We plan to organize the networking element of this event to create an environment that enables a high degree of individual choice, with both indoor and outdoor space.

Speaker:  Omri Shtayer, Chief Executive Officer, Lagoon

Omri is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Lagoon, a no-code data intelligence platform that empowers investors to make better investment decisions by providing access to the relevant data in the blink of an eye.  Prior to Lagoon, Omri served as a major in the Israeli Air force, flying F-16Is and in charge of a joint forces air command cell. In that role, he created tools that allowed him to make better strategic decisions in real-time, plan his missions faster, and remove obstacles for mission-critical communications.  In this briefing, Omri will compare the data challenges and available tools facing investors with his experiences in the cockpit of an F16.
