World Services Group and Bloomberg BNA Launch Strategic Alliance With
Cross-Border Deals Forum in New York City
World Services Group together with Bloomberg BNA, announced an agreement that provides insights into tax reform, privacy and data security compliance, and cross-border risk assessment for WSG members and their clients. The agreement includes a three-year forum series, the first of which took place last month with the Cross-Border Deals Forum in Manhattan.
"WSG is constantly seeking opportunities to add value to its membership, and this agreement with Bloomberg BNA offers tremendous benefits to our member firms," said Larry Pascal, chairman of WSG. "As the leading information provider to legal, tax and compliance professionals, Bloomberg BNA is an ideal associate."
The three-year forum series will continue to feature industry experts with Bloomberg BNA's data-driven insights into global issues. The first event in the series, the Cross-Border Deals Forum, took place on June 20 at Bloomberg LP's 120 Park Avenue New York offices. The inaugural forum explored strategies to handle business and regulatory challenges, and featured a keynote interview with Cary Kochman, head of the North American M&A Group at Citi. Like all forums in the series, it brought together an audience of international business professionals and offer networking opportunities.
The relationship with Bloomberg BNA becomes the fourth "Alliance" that WSG has formed for the benefit of its members. WSG has established Alliances with the global bank Santander, through which member firms provide services to clients of Santander's International Desk service; Interact Marketing, which provides online marketing tools to WSG members; and the Southwestern Institute for International and Comparative Law, which offers WSG discounted entry to the Academy of American and International Law.
