What is FIMA?

The FIMA Community

After 13 years of FIMA events, reference data leaders know these are the three days annually to learn strategies for the coming year and beyond. From the biggest Financial Institutions, Department of Treasury, Insurance Agencies, to disrupters like Twitter and PayPal, this is where the data community meets to set strategy with confidence, with exclusive insights from seasoned leaders.

An Interactive Experience

Don’t expect to listen to repetitive presentations all day. Our format is specifically designed to help you learn more, faster. A variety of session types (like debates, roundtables, coaching sessions, fireside chats, and more) means you'll takeaway more, new, well-rounded perspectives.

Ideal Networking

Meeting over 400 of your peers from across the industry sounds kind of overwhelming, but you’ll never be lost in a sea of name tags. There are over 12 hours of different formal and informal networking sessions to make sure you meet with the people you want to, from CDOs to risk and audit executives.
