The Spaulding Group's next webinar will be held this coming Monday, August 15 at 11:00 AM EST. I learned today that registration has been phenomenal, and that it will likely set an attendance record for us. And while loads of our verification clients and Performance Measurement Forum members have taken advantage of their opportunity to participate at no cost, there are many others who have signed up, too.
The topic, Excel Tips and Tricks for Performance Professionals, will be hosted by Jed Schneider, CIPM, FRM and Neil Riddles, CFA, CIPM. They will provide some of the tips and tricks they have learned in their 50 plus years (combined) in investment performance measurement, attribution and risk. Tips will include custom formatting, date manipulation, pivot tables, using arrays to link returns, using IRR and XIRR to calculate internal rates of return, offset function, conditional formatting and other tricks for use in performance calculations.
There are only a few more days before this event, so if you're interested, sign up soon! If you can't make it, you can still obtain a copy of the event.
Again, the webinar is free for Spaulding Group verification clients and members of the Performance Measurement Forum. A modest per site fee of $150 is charged for others. By "per site" we mean that you can have a room filled with people, but will only be charged $150, which is quite reasonable. Please contact Patrick Fowler (732-873-5700) for more details or to register.
p.s., I should mention that there is no truth to the rumor that Jed and Neil will be doing their "cool tricks" on Yo Gabba Gabba. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, you probably don't have young children or grandchildren (I didn't know what this was, either, until recently).
