Virtual Roundtable with David Craig, Refinitiv

BAB is  delighted to host a virtual roundtable discussion with David Craig, Group Head of Data & Analytics, Stock Exchange Group (LSEG), and CEO, Refinitiv.  Drawing insights from the incredible flows of data across Refinitiv systems — about 180 billion packets of data sent daily — David will discuss how financial markets and businesses are changing the way they use data, what the use of data today tells us about markets tomorrow, the importance of data flows to support trade and markets, and the next big challenge in sustainable finance: supplying data that reflects the impact of nature loss on economies and the global financial system.

By way of background, BAB’s executive roundtable series regularly features some of the world’s leading chairs and chief executives who we invite to lead a discussion for a group of around 25 senior business leaders on key issues of importance to British and American business. The event operates under Chatham House Rule and provides a valuable opportunity for dialogue amongst global business and government leaders.
